|Yeah, I should probably vacuum before I take pictures.|

I love that chair and, like our sofa, it pretty much has someone sitting in it every night. It is 12 years old and has held up really well and I still love the look of it. We’re going an entirely different direction with the fabric for it, and I have to admit, I’m a little nervous. Honestly, I’m a lot nervous. What if it doesn’t work with the rug (that is FINALLY coming this week; nothing like waiting since May)? What if I tire of the pattern?

See how sharp contrast welting can look? (P.S. I should not have done a search for contrast welting … I have yet to find an example of it on a print and now I’m worried it will be too busy.)

Unfortunately the reupholsterer said it will be three to four weeks to finish it. I hope he’s the underpromise-and-overdeliver type and he’ll be calling me in two weeks to tell me it’s finished, but I sort of doubt it. One of the wicker chairs from in front of the fireplace will stand in for the time-being, which may not be a good thing. It was readily apparent last night that the dogs love the idea of having an entire area rug to themselves. They won’t be happy when the furniture goes back to its normal locations.
