It may be President’s Day, but our First Ladies deserve some attention, too. In addition to working on issues that affect our country, they’re great role models for their strong sense of personal style. From our current administration to the past few leaders in office, we’ve seen a bold change in politics as well as design taste.
Here are the accent chairs we feel are fitting of some of our most recent First Ladies:
First Lady Melania Trump is known for her striking sense of fashion. Chic and modern, she adds her own twist to a variety of looks to make them her own. Since the Trumps’ New York penthouse is adorned in gold, we felt our Gramercy Wing Chair would complement her style. A traditional wingback chair gets a modern twist with gold velvet upholstery finished in croc pattern. Adorned with hand-applied gold nail head trim, the chair also features stylish Lucite legs that give it an air of extravagance, which is signature Trump.
As First Lady, Michelle Obama led the effort to get kids moving. She wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty in the garden or try something different. Her bright and bold personality would be a great fit for our Ethan Chair. Its glamorous green velvet upholstery highlights the curved silhouette, while the gold legs let you know it’s meant for someone unique.
When Laura Bush was First Lady, she brought a sense of Southern elegance to the White House, looking as confident at important dinners as she did relaxing outdoors. Her Texas home is rich with traditional style as well as rustic touches. Our Palmer Wing Chair would suit her well, with its warm check plaid in gray and marigold, as well as its modified wing style that provides a relaxed twist to classic form.
