Now all it needs is a tan.

Such a classic chair that suits all interiors!

Margaret said...

Guido's owner can't upholster, or afford one. Good thing they "Aced" Jr. High Home Ec.

Your tag speaks for itself.

Normally I really dig a guido, but not this one.

Are those petrified donuts in the tray on the woven twig ottoman?

Raina Cox said...

Margaret - Ha ha!

sherri - Yes. A chair that comely doesn't keep its shape by indulging in carb bombs.

Ahh, a chair wearing a tee shirt. Why hadn;t I thought of repurposing an old tee that way?

You always crack me up.

I sort of feel like that chair is suiting up to do some bar-b-queing. Nice apron.

Ha! I knew you couldn't stay away forever (said the man who has barely posted all summer himself)

Ha!
Now that's just sloppy right there.
You all shower after the gym -- don't you listen to a word La Mamma says?!
Ciao, Alcira

Some things are just not meant to be slipcovered!

Raina, welcome back .Hope this is not temporary..
There are a whole lot of "why"s going on here-
Why the strange double twig arrangement in the fireplace/slab.
Why the creepy ottoman made of ( looks like ) owl's vomit.
Why not buy a decent looking chair or upholster properly?
Why feature in Marie Claire Maison .
See you around more, fab design lady!

Dude! I could be rich! I've had "Guido" sitting in my family room waiting for attention for awhile! If only I hadn't been so busy hiding him and marketed him!

Now, to see what is hiding under the boys' beds to market as ottoman decor.
