A pair of Pearsall-style chairs that had the ugliest, sun-bleached upholstery you could possibly imagine from the early 1960's. We had them re-upholstered and they now proudly sit in our living room

Our Story

Chairish began as a glimmering germ of an idea, hatched around a dining table (the site of all eureka moments). A husband and wife — one a tech entrepreneur, the other a fashion executive — lamented how unwelcoming, beige and airless the high-end design world felt. Where was the curious, wide-eyed experimentation? Who sucked out all the fun? They dreamt of a platform, somewhere in cyberspace, where adventurous home decorators could find and cherish an expertly curated array of home furnishings and art. Since then, millions of shoppers and small businesses have connected through Chairish, sharing iconic and often one-of-a-kind pieces, giving them all a new home. There's now an ever-growing team and HQs in San Francisco and Berlin. A Chairish design podcast. Even a Chairish magazine. And that's just the beginning. But enough about us — come explore what makes your heart race in our emporium of style.
