a chair in the bath...

House Beautiful

with our master bath re-do in full swing, I keep looking at saved images of bathrooms. Ours won't be large enough for it, but isn't a chair in the bath just the thing...?

I've always wanted a pretty terry-covered chair in the bath but have never had the space. :)

I so totally agree! For my recent bathroom reno I kept imagining my Chinese Chippendale relacquered in cherry red! I have a set of six which I found in an op shop for $40 and I am saving my pennies to do the restoration on the bargain chairs!
I love a chair in the bathroom,so that after a relaxing bath, I can paint my toenails!
Lovely!

Oh yes, especially if someone handsome and kindly was sitting in it, making sure my champagne glass was full, and beautifully reading some lovely romantic prose out loud ~ Colette, perhaps?

Great theme.

Yes! I just love the look. I had a round ottoman with no place to put it so it went in the master bath. But I still would like to have a special chair.

I too wish I had room in the Master Bath for a chair. These are just gorgeous! xo

The Zhush said...

yup, just the thing! Can't wait to see your finished bath!

Kathy said...

Yes, it is. Our tub has steps, so we use those, however, a chair would be prettier. We have a small two-tiered table instead, so that would have to go. I think that it's the wood contrast that looks so nice amongst all that porcelain and tile. k

I would knock a wall out to make room for a chair in the bath!

I love this look and can't wait to see the finished space!

Love the functionality of a chair in the bathroom, looks pretty glam too!

My next grand bathroom will have a "lounging" space in it. I want a big comfy decorative chair that I can just relax in before or after a long bath. I'm quite the dreamer.

I already know the bathroom is going to be beautiful. Can't wait to see it.

Yes, in our master bath I've managed to place two chairs, one on either side of the door. I love how civilized it feels to place clothes on a chair rather on the floor and to have a place to sit that isn't the side of the tub. Beautiful, beautiful examples!!

I've always dreamed of a chaise in my bathroom!

Agreed. Love a sweet vintage chair anywhere. They add elegance to a bath, and are great for stacking rolls of clean white towels!

The Frosted Gardner said...

Oh man - now I wish I could be a chair in our bathroom! But like you - it is much too small. :(

Splendid Willow said...

I am looking forward to seeing YOUR new bathroom!

The images you picked are stunning.

Happy Tueday my friend. Looks like you had quite a day yesterday! (:

I always have a chair in the bathroom, and I sit to brush my teeth - more thorough that way! so I never have gray teeth...

quintessence said...

Ours isn't large enough for a chair either but I love the idea - I obviously use the tub ledge!! That first photo is one of my favorites!!

Acquired Objects said...

We have a small stool in ours holding towels but I love the chair in the bath! Happy day to everyone!

Ivy Lane said...

lovely photos... I am thinking chinese garden stool in a blue and white pattern.........

Happy Tuesday!

Robynne's Nest said...

I agree with Janell, to put your clothes on a chair instead of the floor...hopefully one day I will have a bathroom big enough!!! Lovely photo. Robx

Oh the mirrored tub in the last picture makes my heart happy!
And I do love a chair in the bathroom.

Yes, a chair -- and a fireplace -- in a bathroom are signs of true luxury.

SHERRY HART said...

I love a chair in the bath. Think I will take out my husbands sink and put a chair in instead. he will just have to adjust :)

Alena said...

A chair in the bathroom would be fabulous although I'd sit down and not move for a long time and then always be late for work :)

Sarah said...

It really makes the bathroom into a room, but I already spend way too long in the shower anyway... The last thing I need is to make the room even nicer :) Can't wait to see your finished bath!

Lyndsy @ L Kae Interiors said...

This is a GREAT post!! I totally agree with you. It is the small details, like a chair, that make spaces feel cozy rather than stark and barren. Perfect collection of images. Thanks!

I love our chair in the master bath! It is such a luxury to have!

I found the perfect bath chair and then we moved and now the layout does not work. I was heartbroken over it. I saw in a mag where they recovered the chair in white terry cloth and so I had one recovered and now it feels so out of place anywhere but the bath. Alas, no room now. Ugh. I hope you find the perfect spot!
