We often have wonderful sets of antique and vintage French sheepbone chairs in stock but I don’t recall ever writing a client spotlight about sheepbone chairs. That’s about the change, thanks to Veritta H. in Clovis, CA! Veritta sent some beautiful photos of her dining room after she purchased a set of six vintage sheepbone chairs from us.
If you don’t know the sheepbone chair style, this photo of one of the dining chairs in Veritta’s set shows you what to look for. The sheepbone refers to the shapely legs, also called ‘os de mouton’ in French, which simply translates as bone of the sheep because it looks like a lamb’s leg. The legs are joined by curvy stretchers. The upholstered French dining chairs date to around 1950 and they are crafted in solid oak.
The six sheepbone chairs look fantastic in Veritta’s dining room! Veritta says that she built her home 11 years and bought the dining table 10 years ago but she has been waiting for just the right chairs. I’m glad she found them at last! Veritta tracked them down on our OneKingsLane.com shop, but you can also find our many new, vintage, and antique dining chairs on our own EuroLuxHome.com website.
Veritta says that the sideboard is an antique but the table is antique-inspired. She has done a fantastic job accessorizing her dining room and it looks like she collects wine corks from her favorite bottles! This photo shows the handsome nailhead trim on the vintage sheepbone chairs, which adds another touch of luxury and Old World elegance. The pale upholstery of the chairs highlights the rich wood tones of the table and the old oak chairs.
Here’s another view of the dining room with a very powerful piece of art on the far wall.
I love that chandelier too – it’s the perfect lighting for the space.
Thanks Veritta for inviting us into your lovely dining room and for giving us the chance to talk about the sheepbone chair style. It is a classic look that works well with all kinds of decor, from traditional French Country to more eclectic design schemes – and it never goes out of style!
