Some people think of metal furniture as being too hard and too industrial. While that can certainly be said about some pieces, there is a lot of metal furniture, particularly chairs, that are anything but this. I love adding brass and iron chairs to a room's mix because they add definite interest- some of them can be quite sculptural, while others are the perfect foil for a room laden with wood furniture. Many of the chairs featured here are quite feminine and would be apropos for a dressing room or a bedroom. And if you want something a little more restrained, the brass bamboo chairs or the Billy Haines slipper chairs are perfection.
