Oh my goodness, chair of my heart!
Okay, so I saw this chair on Pinterest recently (I'm getting addicted, it's an absolute feast for the eyes).
I want it. I need it. I MUST HAVE IT.
At the very least, I want to know what fabric that is. I have a new two-seat sofa in EXACTLY (exactly!) the same shape that would look perfect in this coat. It is currently upholstered in a horrible neutral linen that I'm sure is very lovely and tasteful, but I cannot abide it.
I followed all the pins back to the source and found that the image was originally posted on tumblr .... without an acknowledgement.
I spent a good three hours on the interwebs trying to find it. And then, at last, success! It comes from www.grahamandgreen.co.uk. That's the good news.
The bad news is that the customer service people aren't allowed to tell me who their supplier is. One kind woman disclosed that it is a suzani print that is produced in India, but ... well, India is a big place, isn't it, and I've no idea how to even go about trying to find it in that vast country.
I am sad. This is my perfect fabric.
Please excuse me while I go and sit in my horrible linen sofa and sob a little.
