Chairman of the room
March 10, 2009
Trust me, you cannot truly see the T.L.C. of this chair, the upholstery is ready for a lift, ready for a freshening up. As my thoughts turn to spring cleaning and giving the house a good scrubbing, my “to do” list includes reupholstering this chair. Any suggestions for fabric, something bold or beige? I am thinking a fun stripe or a fab print and then I wimp out and say what about a chic neutral. This chair is a “Baker” and sits in my living room. My husband and I bought it when we lived in the city, b.c. – (before children.) My sofa is a sage green velveteen. As much as I love white or light upholstery, my life with three children and one dog, (see his head peaking from his bed, bottom left corner) requires something a bit sturdier and something perhaps to endure lots of wear and tear. Just like a chairman needs to reside, govern and provide counsel, this chairman of the room does provide a spot for reading and solving world problems.
I recently found this lamp at a local shop and knew it would add a fresh vibe to this spot.
The fabric shade makes me smile. I want my sad old chairman of the room to smile again.
Even he looks like the economy of time has taken it’s toll, no matter how resilient a character.
Love to have your input.
