London-based furniture dealer Christopher Howe says of his painted Windsor chairs: "We should all have at least one in a heart-rending color." We agree—and so, apparently, does Crate & Barrel, which has come out with a trio of classic painted chairs at a compelling price.
Above: Howe's Windsor Chairs are traditionally made of beechwood; £225 each.
Above: Crate and Barrel's Willa Chair is an interpretation of the Windsor chair featuring a beechwood frame and a slender spindle back; available in peacock, dove, or snow (we think a mix would be nice around a dining table); $149 each.
