Tried and True: Kubu Chair

Do you ever see products on-line or on pinterest and think they look great, but wonder if the real deal is as good in person? It can be so disappointing to order something from the web, only to have it arrive and be less than what you hoped for and have to deal with the hassle of a return. Because of this, I've decided to start a new series on my blog called Tried and True where I feature products that I either have in my own home, or have used for clients that I would recommend to you.

First up, a Darling Kubu (or kooboo) wicker chair from Safavieh.
I just ordered a pair of these for my back porch to double as hostess chairs
for dining and accent seating when we're outside with the kids.
You might be rolling your eyes at the word wicker, but I happen to LOVE the gorgeous gray wash of kubu wicker and I know these are a piece I will have for years to come. Plus they can be just as chic indoors as they are for outside use, as evidenced by this gorgeous room styled by designer Jill Sharp Brinson as featured in House Beautiful

The chairs came yesterday and they were everything I've hoped for. Moderately comfortable,
a great size and height to be used with a dining table, and they are very sturdy
so the kids can climb all over them. Plus I love the swoop of the arm.

I purchased mine from Joss & Main, but they're also available from Overstock at a similar price.
I'm so excited for the temperature to warm up so I can actually use these outside.

I snapped a couple of pictures of them with another darling tried and true item I love, these darling navy polka dot pillows from Lands End. Doesn't the pillow look cute with the chair?

  8. Love that chair! How do you think it will hold up outside though? I would love to buy some for my covered porches, but wonder how long they would last since overstock says they are an "indoor chair". How have they held up for you so far outside?

  10. Is this chair really 40.2 inches high? I was hoping to order some to go with the PB Zinc Top Table, but the table is just 30 inches high. Even the RH Zinc Top Table is just 30 inches high. The RH Provence Dining Chair (the other wicker chair I'm considering) is just 33 inches high. So I'm wondering if maybe the measurements on the Overstock chair are wrong? Can it really be 40.2 inches?
