hello all! it's week two of the ORC with Linda of blog 'Calling It Home.' this week, i have a find to share with you all! while scouring craig's list, as i often do, i came across a pair of vintage chairs. not just any pair, a HIS and HER pair of vintage chairs; or should i say, a GENTLEMAN and LADY pair (as the seller listed them). i fell in love immediately and jumped on emailing the seller. well, as luck would have it, i got them for a song and headed to gastonia to pick them up! while they are already pink, and are super comfy, they need a new outfit in my opinion.
i started doing some research to get the ideas flowing. take a look at some inspiration pics...
those who know me, know i want something a bit fun. this last chair most closely captures my vision for my own set. i know i want to use multiple fabrics on the chairs, just trying to decide which fabrics. pattern on the back and arms, probably a solid on the seat and back cushions with a contrast piping. i'm exploring these combinations... i was kinda leaning toward the snake, but maybe not!
i know i have to decide soon and get these lovelies off to the upholsterer. thoughts? anyone?
i need to select my paint color, which will be my focus this coming week. the wall will begin shortly, but i'm putting that off as long as possible since my house will be a total wreck once that happens. luckily, my contractor dad is helping in that department!
head on over to calling it home to check out the other 96 linking participants in this season of the ORC. that's a lot of great design in one place; be prepared to stay awhile. until next week, design swell. live well.
design is a way of life.
