Chair Audition

Dear Annechovie, You don't know me. I'm a little orange velvet chair, your biggest fan who loves all the portraits of chairs you do. Would you please do one of me? I will sit very still and not talk like Mary McDonald on Million Dollar Decorators.


Are you listening Anne? Can I be your muse?


The Vamp here....I just got a pair of these beauties.

I am inspired by this piece of art by Anne Harwell of Annechovie. So much so that I use it for my business card that she designed. I guess I have a thing for orange chairs!



I also love old French frames on chairs, upholstered in velvet. So the chairs in this perfect French Quarter dollhouse also tickled my fancy.

And I love strong color on a traditional chair. And nobody does it better than Tobi Fairley.

I also just got these cute cute cute boxes of matches from Annechovie! Treat yourself them!

Isn't my chair a good muse for Anne Harwell?

You would like my neighbor .. a new neighbor who moved in this week. As we were walking out of the building, I saw two chairs, sitting in the lobby waiting for the elevator.
This sort of chair, with what looked like pale champagne colored silk upholstery.

I immediately decided to rummage through the flea markets this week.
