Good afternoon blog buds!...today I am hoping to gather some opinions about upholstered chairs. As you may know, I am redecorating our master bedroom. My color scheme has been inspired by a couple of pictures in one of my favorite books called Jessie Walker's Country Decorating
This picture in particular:We've painted the walls, had new carpet installed, and I've painted nearly every stick of furniture that was previously painted green. Currently I am waiting on some of the long tailed pillow cases in Antique White to arrive before taking pictures because without them the bed is not fully dressed. In the meantime, I am having a difficult time trying to decide on what upholstered chair to order, and am hoping that some of you out there have these chairs in your home and could tell me if they are comfortable or not...and I mean comfy for like for watching tv in. I'm also hoping you can pass along any advice or experiences, good and/or bad, you might have with regards to quality of product. The chair I'm leaning towards is the Cape Cod by Johnston Benchworks:...it's very similar to the Millers Creek by JB but is 3 inches shorter and has a loose cushion as opposed to the tight cushion:...does anyone out there have either of these chairs?...the Cape Cod in particular...is it comfy?...good quality? etc.
Actually the chair I *REALLY* want is this one from The Seraph:...but I am told that is it not very comfy, more of a sit and visit with company type chair...The Seraph does however have a chair I have added to the equation:...anyone out there have any experience with this one?...it's called Public House.
Another choice to consider is this chair from Angel House:
...do any of you have this chair?...the price is less than the JB chair I want.
As far as fabric goes, that's a whole 'nother ball of wax!...oh my there are so many choices...I did request a few sample swatches from JB and am favoring this one:...it's Lover's Knot in Linen/Shell reversible so you can choose either side, the lighter or the darker.
So there's the dilemma...I will greatly appreciate your input, recommendations, and advice!
Before I leave you, I thought I should give a couple of peeks at my progress...the New England style blanket chest is a new addition...it is from the line of furniture I offer in my shoppe...the 5-light tin candelabra is also in stock at the moment...the lovely basket was made by Pam of Primitive Basketcase...the sweet doll by Barbara of Turkey Hollow Folk Art...and the window treatments are from the company that makes the textiles I sell...I haven't decided if I'm going to offer these or not, they were quite the struggle to get just so! LOLIn this picture you are seeing more new additions...the primitive antique desk and wall cupboard were found at my favorite antique store...the blanket crane was made by my hubs...the Colonial portrait was painted by and gifted to me by Pat of Olde Bittersweet Farm...currently I am searching for a taller ladderback to go at the desk, just have this one there for now:
Alrighty then...that's going to do it for this time around...thank you in advance for your comments!!...have a lovely rest of the week friends!
