I had great plans to surprise you all with a dramatically different French Wingback chair, only vaguely reminiscent of the sneak peak I showed last week.
Unfortunately, I need help with a decision which will ruin the surprise (isn't it cute the way I imply that there is anyone actually reading this? other than my parents).
So here is the chair in progress (and if you don't like the fabric, keep it to yourself because
i love it).
I dreamed of trimming the chair in shiny finishing tacks, all around the edges. But then I introduced Mr Dream to Mr We Don't Have Time For That.
After dismissing several other options, I decided on ivory trim. Then I found dark coral trim. I never thought I would find anything other than ivory. So now I have to make a decision.
As I said, ivory was my first choice (when I thought I had no other choices). It is also the trim that most of my upholstery classmates preferred. But I think I like the coral better. It lets the eye focus on the wood, instead of the trim. I feel like the ivory looks like a stripe and takes all of the attention away from the beautiful wood. Here are more pics...
Might be overkill, but a couple more shots....
Okay. If you have made it to the end of this post, then you truly are my friend. Or my mom or dad. I would really appreciate feedback on these two options. I know, I know, it's my chair, so it's really only my opinion that matters...blah, blah, blah. I would like to know if the chair looks better with the ivory trim. So please leave a comment and tell me what you think looks best. Ivory trim or coral trim.
