I shared my antique chaise lounge last week after having sold my leather couch and chair, and we have really enjoyed the change. Then, after adding the antique settee that we were using in the bedroom, I decided to sell the blue persian rug as I just didn't like it with the settee.
I decided since everything in here is vintage or antique, I needed a dose of modern, so I added a creamy shag rug. Really, I did.
And I LOVE it!
The kids are always here on the floor, and they love it too.
Oh...here is the settee. This was also passed down from a relative and I had it reupholstered several years ago for another house.
Everything was fine until I took some things to consign at the shop of a friend who is a designer and saw this chair. I fell in love immediately.
Oh yes, just the color I am loving these days!!! It has a down cushion too!
BTW...I also switched out the drop cloth shades I had made for the windows with the bamboo ones-- again to keep things from looking *too* antique.
This is the first time I have been without a Persian or Turkish rug in years, but I'm really enjoying the neutral/no pattern look.
This was about three posts in one but I could not wait to share my chair. I basically traded for the chair, so all of this has been no cost, plus I actually have money left over. Who can argue with that??
Thanks SO very much for stopping by! Come on over to my Far Above Rubies facebook page if you have questions or just want to chat.
