Omgosh, I had no idea there were soooo many other chair-fanatics out there!
I’m, obviously, in good company!
(thanks for the many [private] email admissions–I’ll never tell!)
More of [my] Madness!
This one, $65.
I’m not changing a thing–it just needs a good cleaning. This does not happen very often—good price, just like it is. (I feel p-ret-ty blessed when it does!)
Ideally, I’d like to re-do this one in linen or hemp. A very soft color. But it won’t be cheap, and I don’t hate it enough to change it right now.
Besides, it’s growing on me— especially now that it’s really well cleaned!
I -love- bergères!
And all those carvings—omg!
Now, this chair—
I need someone to explain why I love. . . .
Red is not my passion, nor is the Art Nouveau or Art Deco style. But this vanity chair. . . .it just always makes me smile!
I talked to my upholstery-ladies about recovering it—they shot me down cold. They said I would completely ruin it. –Just refinish and repair the legs.
I’m toying with selling it. Are you interested?
Another thrift store chair! $4.99
I’m crazy about this one! Except for the legs, and the fake tapestry, and the fake leather. How funny that it has a down seat–?
It’s in my queue for upholstery. I already have an incredible golden-beige silk-linen-raffia for the interior, and my mind made up on a fabulous nailhead design (lots to buy–$$ yikes) . . . .
It’s large, and sits deep. Ab-so-lute-ly perfect for a man. So I like the original upholstery idea, and am hunting for a real, brown leather hide to wrap the outside. And I have some Chippendale, ball & claw legs I will probably switch to!
