Today I feel there's not an original thought in my head. Thus when I saw Apartment Therapy celebrating red chairs, I decided to jump on that. Xioa restaurant in Echo Park, California has some smacking red chairs that I love. In fact, after seeing them I told my friend Joy when my husband and I finally open our own Vietnamese establishment I want red chairs too. But do red chairs seem too Chinese? Let me tell you one thing our place WON'T have: a gong that customers get to wail on. Is that just a Midwest thing?
