DESIGN YOUR PERFECT CHAIR
What is your idea of bliss?
I love to read. Reading has always been my go to “happy place”. When I was young I used to read all the time and it would transport me away to another world where life was perfect. All the hangups I had as an adolescent girl didn't exist. I had the perfect body, the perfect boyfriend and life in my imagination was just so much better.
Now I'm an adult and although I do firmly live in reality, I do still choose to take a step through my imagination where I am transported to the Scotish Highlands and spending time with a certain Redheaded Highlander, or enjoying the life stories of other people where we can appreciate how good we do actually have life.
There are two places I love to read. One is in my bed! I have the most beautiful mattress to laze in (bought from the best mattress store ever of course!!) and I also love to read in a sunny spot in my lounge room in a comfy chair. This is what I will be talking about today!! That comfy chair!
The perfect Comfy Occasional Chair:
As far as comfy occasional chairs go there are two types of chairs. Cute & Comfy, and it's a lucky day when you come across a chair that has both of these features!
We have found the PERFECT CHAIR. It's both CUTE & COMFY and you can tailor it perfectly to suit your tastes and room decor.
HARPER BUTTONBACK CHAIR:
Australian Made Comfort & Style
This Chair Features:
Custom Fabric Choice
Australian Dunlop Foam Seating
Styling Buttonback Design
I had this chair made in the gorgeous green plush fabric and matching print from Profile Fabrics, but you can have it made in any colour that suits your style, taste & decor. The choice really is endless. The selection below are some colour choices for the gorgeous “Velvet touch” type of fabrics.
PROFILE FABRIC SELECTION SAMPLE:
WARWICK FABRICS SELECTION SAMPLE:
You can choose to have it made in a single colour, or really express your unique style in a complementary fabric choice with a plain & pattern.
This is another Tub Chair for an incredible Australian Manufacturer we have made in the Warwick Flowerbomb Scarlet. We decided to go with an all over print in this style of chair as its smaller and wore the print really well.
Making your colour selection:
There is no right or wrong when it comes to making a colour selection. You can carefully analyse your room decor and choose something to complement your current decor, or you can jump right out of the box and decide on an outrageous choice that you can make work through the use of cushions, throws and floor rugs.
I think if your room is in cool tones, it would be wise to stick with cool colours and visa versa with warm colours.
My lounge room at home is currently (I plan to do a complete re style soon!): Warm Tones
Floors - Dark Wood Panel Vinyl Walls - CreamCurtains - Sheer Lace
Lounge - Burgundy LeatherFurniture - Dark Brown Wood.
Floor Mat - Burgundy, Forest Green & Latte tones
So the Flowerbomb Scarlet would suit my styling beautifully. But I could also go for a plain Latte or Forest Green depending on whether I wanted to go with light or dark.
If your room was Cool Tones such as grey floors, white walls, grey lounge, light wood furniture then you could go with any cool tone colour and add splashes of that colour throughout the rest of your room with cushions & throws.
