Home our house my new chair

my new chair

by Shawni

After about six months of deliberation on which fabric to use, and another few for the actual labor of it, we finally got our new chair for the living room.
This local guy here made it for me. He just copied it from a magazine picture I brought to him.

I love it.

So now our living room looks like this:(The original “before and afters” of this room are here. And because some have asked, the paint is “Silver Fox” from Dunn Edwards.)

It's so beautiful! The style of the chair is gorgeous, as well as the color of the fabric. I also love it with the pretty blue on the walls.

Shawni,
I found your site via Saren (she and i were on study abroad in london back when we were 19!) and I've been really enjoying looking through your photography. Nice work! Those Duke photos are awesome!
I love this room of yours. Fabulous new chair and I have to ask you about the paint color. Would you share what color that is–if you remember? I'm looking at redoing my colors in my home and want to get a blue I like. This looks divine! Please share if you would. Enjoying your posts, Lesli Streets

In this situation, the next customer who purchases this chair will essentially be getting a terrific bargain by purchasing a chair that has been used for a few days with little to no risk of a defect occurring. Read More
