It's possible that I have become obsessed with chairs.
The style of furniture I usually prefer is sleek Scandinavian Contemporary (IKEA, DANIA etc.) but when it comes to comfort I prefer a cozy upholstered cushy traditional chair. Now that I finally have one I am not content to leave it 'as is'.
Over the years I have seen artist made chairs with fabrics that coordinate and contrast, all combined to make a fabulous product. Even this Mary Englebreit illustration has different fabrics in combination.
I love the look of these chairs from Mary Lynn O'Shea at The Artful Home, but O the prices! And they aren't girly or cushy enough.
This chair I got from a magazine article about yard sales. As if one could just find these anywhere. I've tried, and gave up.
So I have collected pictures of cushy but plain versions, in hopes of one day having a cuddly chair of my own....affordably, that is. And now I do...
Very expensive version, and then a pink pug picture, just for fun. Isn't he fat?
These are just so messy, in a shabby chic way. I can't do messy. I just don't know how to pull it off.
Lots of ruffles and pillows must be included in the design. It's all about the illusion of comfort and luxury and frilliness.
But I am still drawn to these chairs that are painted by Eric Carle. Children's size. Too cute.
Meanwhile, Chums waits patiently for his next snack. He always looks worried that he'll never get fed. Ha!
