All Things Considered, It Comes Down to Shape

I was looking at Restoration Hardware's website the other day and noticed this photo for their vintage look French chairs.  Having grown up with this type of furniture, it caught my eye.  I have always enjoyed the rounded look and the curvy cabriole legs.

The simplicity of this shot is lovely.  It's a joy to see all of the pieces in the same fabric; giving one's eyes a chance to focus on the shapes.

I was wondering what it would be like for me to make a series of beads in the same neutral colors- at least 10 and see how it affects my view of the actual beads, whether the shapes matter more, the subject matter or what it would do?  Have you ever tried something similar?  I'd love to hear what you noticed about it.  Did you change anything you did in the future because of it?

And of course, I can't leave this post without asking you which chair is your favorite and why?  You know how interesting it is to hear everyone's opinions.  See you tomorrow.  Have a fun post planned.
