ASK KELLY: HANGING RATTAN CHAIRS



Single Hanging Swing, Fran's Wicker, $225.00  |  Hanging Rattan Chair, Serena & Lily, $450.00  |  Two's Company Hanging Rattan Chair, Amazon, $348.50  |  Zebra Outdoor Pillow, Furbish, $85.00  |  Carrot Stick 2016-30, Benjamin Moore  |  Palm Beach Outdoor Pillow, Furbish, $85.00  | Flamingo's Dream 2002-40, Benjamin Moore

I also love the look of hanging rattan chairs. They're so fun and unexpected and look great both indoors and out. Fran's Wicker is a popular source for these chairs and you really can't beat the price and the shape. Serena & Lily also introduced one this year that's a little pricier but has a very cozy feel to it.

And I have to suggest painting the chair. The natural rattan is a great look, but I think they look sooo chic in white or a bright color with a fun cushion...can really make a space!

Thanks so much for your question Susan and good luck with your search!

xo, Kelly

BEACH READS

PALM BEACH CHIC...INSPIRATION


The above images are some of my all-time favorites, not just of Palm Beach, but of any place and time. The Lilly girls, C.Z. Guest, and Alice Topping all look utterly timeless, even though they were taken in the 50s and 60s.   

P.S. I'm dying to stage a photo in one of my fan chairs, à la the model in Quadrille. Wouldn't it be terribly fabulous?
