It’s so funny how my finds seem to come in cycles – all dining sets one week, all desks another. This time the theme is apparently, “Chinese Chippendale”. Last time, it was a metal Chinese Chippendale dining set. This time, it’s a set of gorgeous vintage wicker Chinese Chippendale chairs, hand-crafted in Massa, Italy by the “Casa del Vimine”.
The multi-generational family-owned company has been in business since 1963, per their Facebook page and some helpful Google translate. I LOVE being able to find out the history of a piece/pieces!
However, I have the previous owners to thank for the super awesome pink ikat seat cushions – I couldn’t have picked more perfect fabric myself!

Yummy! Hot pink, orange, dark brown/charcoal, lemon yellow – everything that is good and beautiful!
Good stuff, right? I think these are so cute! I’m completely ignoring the fact that I always see a swastika out of the corner of my eye in the pattern on the chair backs… let’s pretend that isn’t there, okay?
