these are a love story...
i found these in a darling kitchen YEARS ago in a wonderful customer's home. i was there looking at a sofa they wanted to sell.
this pair of lovelies lived in their kitchen at the breakfast table. one slightly larger than the other... "his" and "hers". they were arranged around a teeny tiny table and they sat there for every meal.
i pondered... than asked. "if you ever consider selling those, can you let me know?"
i thought about them for so long... and one day, i got the call.
"we are ready to sell the chairs... are you still interested in buying them?"
"ARE YOU KIDDING" ... i thought... wow... i felt like i hit the jackpot.
i immediately said "YES" and honestly... had no idea what price she might ask...
well, it was a fair deal $$$$$ but worth every penny...
now a serious work in progress... striping, staining, and new upholstery ...a little tightening here and there and they will be perfect.
will surely let you see the result... hhmmmm now, upholstery... what does it want to be?
i have dreamed of the chairs since i saw "emma" years ago with gwenie... the pair of fabulous wingbacks in front of her father's fireplace... have you seen it? if not, rent immediately. charming movie... xx
