Dining Room Part 1: Can you Thay Thonet?
The first pieces we found (while looking for something else) at Reside, Inc. were these Eames-esque (but oh so much more affordable and from the same time period) Thonet dining chairs. Don't get me wrong, I am the biggest Eames-worshipper of all time but these were just lined up so pretty-like in the shop and then...



Oh yes we did. Eight. Because one of the things we longed to do most in our new home was have more than one or two people over for dinner - hell, a dinner party even! Yes! And now it can be a reality (still need that table mentioned in previous post) however, we can have THREE other couples over for dinner. At least.

Latest Addition: Here are the chairs in action!

Tyler, I think I might! They DO look great and the seat and back cradle the body. I have 8 around my dining table. I'll find a shot and upload. -J

About Us


Christopher Scott and Jodi Vautrin are the husband and wife team behind Ourhaus, where they chronicle their adventures in home improvement, decorating and travel. After purchasing a unique loft space just a few miles north of Boston, they began photographing and writing about their projects and it blossomed into a creative outlet and platform.

When they’re not home improving, Jodi spends her days as a freelance creative director & designer with a focus on user interface and interactive design, and is an entrepreneur at heart. She serves on the board of AIGA Boston as Vice President of Emerging Ideas & Events.

In his professional life, Christopher is the Technology Director for a multi-service ad agency based in Harvard Square. In his private life, he enjoys tinkering in all its forms, whether it's rebuilding the Ourhaus home network (again), fooling himself into thinking he knows how to fix home appliances, or trying to unravel the mysteries of the guitar. He also flies planes, performs open heart surgery and sings at bar mitzvahs (though not all at the same time).

They share their “haus” with their adorable, highly food-motivated chocolate lab, Lucy.
