I love these high backed slipcovered chairs. They would make awesome head chairs for a dining room. What did Emily from Secrets of a Stylist say in her latest episode? Keep it low profile for casual and high profile for drama? I think this is the perfect blend...high profile for the formality of a dining room (or, why not a kitchen?) yet slipcovered for that casual feel. I am a sucker for grey, but the close-up view online looks questionable, almost velvety. I'm curious. If anyone buys this,let me know how it looks.
