What is shabby chic and is it comfortable? I put together a collage of what I would consider to be shabby chic. What is your opinion, is this comfortable? Please give your honest opinion. With a growing trend of shabby chic for anybody who seeks comfort this would be a concern of yours. I guess the true answer is in how it sits. I would never buy a chair you have not sat in, if you are looking for comfort. Even though shabby chic its not my style, I do love how it looks.
