Obssessed: Vintage French Metal Chairs

I hit the jackpot this week. After a very disappointing stop at IKEA to sit in the jakob and jules desk chairs, I found french, white vintage, metal bistro chairs on craigslist. TEB and I drove out to Encinitas to meet with the French seller who was selling them after the closing of a few of his chain of cafes called Champagne French Bakery. We took home two chairs that have become our new desk chairs, completing our recent cameleon room makover. I will post pictures of the finished cameleon room later but for now I could not be happier with my french chairs that have a story. See my previous post here on the recent comeback of the metal French bistro chair.photo credit: top from martha stewart found via Black*Eiffel; bottom from craigslist

Hello,
I am so happy that you found the chairs you have been looking for.
I have been looking for the same chairs for a long time. I was searching to look for the chair tonight and I read what you wrote. When I read your blog I was so happy and said myself I need to write her.
Do you mind to give me the person who sold the chairs to you? He may already sold, but I would like to try and he may know somebody else has them.
My email address is sanaesmiralce@yahoo.com
Thank you,
Sanae

Hi Sanae,
I tried to send info directly to your email but it bounced back. I purchased the chairs from Sebastian at:
"LE GRAND BAZAR"
legrandbazar@yahoo.com

He had well over 80+ chairs in this style but about half of them were brown. You could also get them power-sprayed a more interesting color.
Good Luck!
