Guess who’s coming to dinner? Your family and friends, this holiday season, that’s who.  And, for one lucky winner, four of those holiday guests will be sitting on these modern-classic Thonet chairs from Bauhaus2YourHouse. Based on the design from modern classic furniture pioneer Michael Thonet, these streamlined beauties will look just as home alongside a traditional dining set as they do by an Eero Saarinen tulip table.


Bentwood Armchairs - Bauhaus2YourHouse - HGTV Freebie Fridays design blog

Chairs like these – with a bentwood frame, a woven cane back and a gingko chocolate faux leather seat — will elevate your Thanksgiving dining room (or heck, any-room) decor, and keep Uncle Bernard from dwelling on a few pesky lumps in the gravy. Okay, maybe not that last part, but they’ll be comfy enough to carry to the living room for some post-meal board games or football-watching, whatever your pleasure. To be entered for a chance to win the set of four Thonet chairs, simply leave us a comment in the field below before 12/11c on Monday, October 24.

This week’s question: What has been your most memorable Thanksgiving (good or bad)? Did you catch the garage on fire with a deep-fryer? Eat Chinese food on the floor of your new house with a few good friends? Make the best cranberry sauce ever? Tell us now.

    Probably the first time I had to cook the entire Thanksgiving meal for 15 family members myself. It all turned out well, but it was pretty stressful!

    last thanksgiving we got a turkey fryer and had tons of ppl over for dinner to be servered at 1pm, but didnt read the directions that said it would take twice as long to cook if you stuffed it,so needless to say it was a very long hungry day, but so fun to talk about

    The most memorable Thanksgiving was the first one with my husband. It was just special because it was our first together.

    My most memorable Thanksgiving was my Grandmothers last. The dinner hasn't been the same without her touch. She always added that something to everything to make it taste so good.

    My best Thanksgiving memory is all of them. It's my favorite holiday. Family, friends, "strays", turkey, cranberry, pie. What's not to love?

  7. Denise says:

    My most memorable Thanksgiving had to be when my now-husband first met my family, because he wowed everybody and they all still adore him (as do I).

    My most memorable Thanksgiving, was without a doubt, thanks to my mom. I had been on a 6 month trip to Europe and my parents wanted to take the whole family to Cancun for Thanksgiving. Holidays are very important to her and she really wanted a traditional Thanksgiving. She had heard that turkeys aren't very common in Mexico, so BROUGHT HER OWN! She froze it and put it in her carry on baggage. We had a connecting flight and as we were in Mexico City, the security man at the xray machine stopped her and inquired what she had in her bag. Mom was clearly nervous, Thanksgiving dinner was pending on her turkey's safe arrival! In a very nervous voice she explained that she brought it to make dinner. A few questions later, after a promise not to sell the turkey, Mom was on her way. If that wasn't enough to make memories, Thanksgiving Day arrived. What Mom didn't reckon on was the possibility that vacation home rental ovens just might not accommodate your typical American turkey! It was WAY too small!!!!! We were in hysterics when we realized that……in the end, we had to cut the turkey into MUCH smaller pieces prior to cooking it…….there was no gravy to be found, but I'll tell you what, fresh strawberry margaritas went surprisingly well with our turkey fiasco!!!!!!

    My most memorable was last November…after being away from my home in Colorado for fifteen years we were back with all of our family and the most amazing food creations at the table that each of us lovingly made. It was such joy to know that we were really, really home at last.

    The best one I can remember is when my sweet grandson was about 3 & on chemo med.s,after giving him his plate we were telling him that he was going to love my turkey."Take a bite"I said hoping he would eat ; his little bald head went down & he folded his hands…. finaly I said"Thank you God!"
