I stopped in my tracks well, I was sitting down, when I saw this chair from Restoration Hardware.
It seriously looks like some chairs I had made in the early 90's. They were reproduction colonial wing back chairs. Somewhere I still have the paperwork. They are actually different from each other, can you tell?
It's really not fair that they're not next to each other, but it's still difficult to tell. One is the MAN's chair and one is the WOMAN'S. One is deeper and taller. The deep wings are to keep in the heat from the fireplace. That's a little XM radio receiver sitting on top. For some reason it won't pick up the signal in the window. Weird, huh?
These chairs are beautiful, but I was getting kind of tired of them. They are also very faded from the sun. I'd been favoring the recently popular french styled chairs, especially the Bergere with an ottoman of course. But, maybe I'm not so out of it after all. RH's version is in linen and with a tight seat. Maybe if I could find the right upholsterer it wouldn't cost me the $1500 per chair that RH is charging. Don't you think it might work?
