French Needlepoint Chairs & Joss & Main Event

I am sitting on a plane on my way back home to California from Atlanta right now.
(Yes, I will admit that I paid the $ and got the wifi for an hour ;)
I think the $5-7 is worth it sometimes
I have so much to share with you about the trip with GMC and Habitat 
It was absolutely an amazing experience and yes, there were a lot of happy tears all around.

I will be sharing more on the trip searching for treasures with GMC and Habitat
 and the emotion filled reveal for the family soon
I will be getting a bunch of fantastic photos from everyone to share with you soon
We are all a little bit exhausted (in a good way!) and re-grouping today

Speaking of treasures and treasure hunting...

I love French needlepoint chairs.
I was fortunate enough to find a fantastic pair a few years ago and they spoke my language immediately.
Do you have any finds like that?
Completely stopped you in your tracks and made your heart go pitter patter?
I might have a few

I get emails all the time about where I find some of the pieces in my home
and these are one that have been asked about often
I completely fell in love the first time I saw them.

Maybe it was their apple green velvet and detailed carved bows

or their old creamy paint covering  all.those.delicious.details

Maybe it was their beautiful needlepoint flowers and aubusson pattern

Or maybe it was all of the above.
I found them on EBAY about 5 years ago~ and knew that they would be happy in my home
no matter where they land. 

Sometimes you find a piece that just inspires you
and that you know is not one of those treasures that you will grow tired of
I love it when that happens.

A little something super exciting coming this week~
I am so thrilled to be curating a sale at Joss and Main!

It's all about French Country- the colors, the styles, the elements
and there will be some of the pieces I have in my own home included in the sale

 I hope you will join in and take a peek ~

Happy Monday!


  1. Courtney, I know you had an amazing experience and look forward to seeing your photos and hearing all the details. You deserve some time to relax and regroup, so I hope you are allowing yourself just that today.
    Love the needlepoint chairs. One of my goals was to needlepoint a chair, but that hasn't happened. A small insert in my grandmothers rocking chair is all that I've managed to do toward stitching a needlepoint chair. '-)

  2. Your needlepoint chair is gorgeous Courtney! Cant wait to see all your pics about your trip!

  3. Those chairs are utterly gorgeous! Great find

  4. Oh cool! I'll watch for your collection on Joss and Main! Do you know which day it will be?


  5. Beautiful and romantic! I love needlepoint and your chairs are lovely, Courtney.

  7. Haven, they spoke about the Habitat home in Atlanta...what a surprise to find that you were involved...well, the house surely must be gorgeous with you and the others furnishing and decorating it...can't wait to see it. Love your gorgeous chairs...and so glad you had a great trip to Atlanta..and congrats on the Joss & Main event!

  8. Gosh, I had no idea wifi only cost $5 on an airplane. I was thinking something really outrageous. Can't wait to see your new things!

  9. It varies- sometimes much higher but if you purchase a longer amount of time- it is less.

  13. I used to live in Atlanta. Love your chairs, love green, love needlepoint, love French... I GET IT!!! :-) I have a little French foot stool with needlepoint. It's curvy and lovely. One of my favorite pieces. (I am on Joss and Main's mailing list.)

  19. First of all, I so enjoyed tagging along with you on your road trip, Courtney! It looks like it was so much fun! I can't even imagine seeing all of the treasures that you girls did!! Love your French chairs! I've got a couple needlepoint pieces that I just adore. The time and talent it must'ave taken to create them makes them even more special. :)
