It’s been a while since I’ve posted a Monday Makeover and I’m rested from my Girlfriends Vacay bliss, I figure I’d show my latest chair fettish makeover. It’s funny when you have a chair fettish, you always see a chair you need in your life… except once you get it, you have to find a place for it. So, I’ve decided it’s time to sell one in order to make room for another. It was a tough choice, but I’ve decided to sell a wing back I’ve had around for about 15 years. I hope it sells soon.. So, moving right along.. here is the latest chair that needed my attention.
I know you’re probably wondering- what’s up with all these chairs….right??? Well, this chair has a history also. You’ve heard me talk about my friend Joyce.. I bought this chair from her about 20 years ago as is.. Like I said, I have a chair fettish. She would always ask me, “how could a person with a small butt need so many chairs… Lol” but she understood my obsession.. Chairs are such an easy piece of furniture and if you have an empty corner somewhere, you can always fit a chair in it to fill the spot. When I saw this one,it was a “gotta have her” moment. It’s a club chair and I didn’t have one. If you’ve ever sat in a club chair, you know how comfortable they are. This one was the perfect size, not too big and yet had a dainty appeal. Sort of like a ladies club chair.
This chair was manufactured by H. Lauzon Furniture Company located in my home state Englewood, NJ. Happy to know this chair was a Made-in-America piece (which is one of the perks of vintage items). I love a chair with chippendale legs
Okay, so you feel me with this chair? I’m going to name her Sheba…which I think is a perfect name for a chair that walks on the wild side. You remember Kittra, well, I couldn’t help myself. I wanted more of the cheetah print so, I decided to go all the way with Sheba. Here is her new look:
I’m in the (slow) process of making a few changes in the living room piece by piece, and she’ll fit right in. But in the meantime, she’s here, making herself at home
I made the black velvet ostrich feather pillow years ago and it’s great match for my furry friend
The rich color of this fabric is stunning and makes a big impact on her new look.
Yes!! I’m wild about this chair!! As you see I have so many plants in this room, which is partly the reason I’m making a few changes. Thankfully, majority of them go outside during spring, summer and partly fall months.
I think this chair deserves a roaring cheer ☺️…. What do you think of Sheba? Until next time lovies, I hope everyone enjoy their Christmas and have a safe and blessed holiday season.
