Radical !

Well, my furniture was delivered this morning and I am sooooo happy to be looking at new stuff ! It's not really red (maroon) but it's in the RED family. Red is a color that I never wore, always disliked. As you can see, the seating pillows are quite puffy with newness. I want to see how they look six months from now. By the way, the fabric is a plush corduroy material. It's really silky feeling.



My camera is not getting the colors of the chair quite right. It's maroon, taupe, chocolate and a little bit of grayish-tan. Crazy Man !!!

I only have a couple more pieces to purchase as well as new lamps. This collection was set up as an entire room in the furniture store but the cocktail, end tables and lamps were too modern for me. The tables looked like space ships. I like being able to mix contemporary with classic styling. I'm using my old cocktail table (which is chocolate colored) for now. I plan on adding a nice mid-height shelf for sure. There is no rush now. I have the major pieces.




Okay, I love the other things but these bar stools are my absolute favorite ! I have been shopping for bar stools for about three months and the only one I liked was one I knew I wasn't going to purchase because of the price. It was at Pier 1 for about $299.00 a stool. They were beautiful and sturdy but I really didn't want to come out of almost $1,000.00 for three stools. --



I went into my furniture store a couple of weeks ago to change my delivery date and was wandering around when back in the clearance room I found these stools. Please forgive me for talking money but the regular price on these was around $179.00 each. They were clearanced down to $48.00 a piece and they are beautiful. The wood is so pretty.



Anyway as you can imagine, I'm a happy camper today.


Enjoy yours !
