When I was a kid, my sister and I used to go visit my poppa on the odd weekend. When we were there, I remember SO clearly that he would put on a Sharon, Lois and Bram record (the only kid-friendly music they had) and we would listen to "She'll be Coming Round the Mountain" while my sister would spin me in fast circles in this chair:
I loved that chair, and when I moved out on my own, I got to take it with me. Not only does it have great memories attached to it, but it is SUPER comfortable!!
So J and I are planning on having it reupholstered and it will eventually find its permanent home in our bedroom.
After reading on Aubrey and Lindsay's blog about "Designer Fabrics" on Queen, J and I went out and took a look at a few options. Our bedroom is a deep grey (Benjamin Moore Asphalt)with white accents (bedding,trim, etc).
Here are the fabric options we found:
And this one:
They are all pretty soft (ultra-suede) so I think any of them could have been good, but we ended up going with the second one! I think it is a bold graphic print with some nice accent colours. The chair is getting picked up on Monday so hopefully it won't take too long!!!
ETA: I'm totally panicking now that it is too busy/bold. Hmm. I know it is too late, but I hope that it ends up looking great. It will be a contrast to everything else in the room, which can be good, right? Ugh. I always second guess decisions!!
