Sassy Seats!

Awhile back, I came across these fun chairs with some straightforward and sassy messages! Couldn't help but think one of these chairs in a room would add some whimsy!  With messages like, "OMG" and "Time Out" - definitely a conversation starter should one walk into a room with a chair like one of these.

The chairs are the work of artist Sarah Ashley Longshore, based in New Orleans.  Her artwork is embroidered on vinyl  that she uses to reupholster antique chairs. Sarah says, "Everything in New Orleans is about art and music and fabulous houses - that's what's inspired me to create these chairs."

Especially for home offices, many want a space that reflects the style of the rest of the home.  So when I recently saw this feature of stylish home offices on House Beautiful online, I knew I had to share more chic office spaces!
