The chairs arrived from One King's Lane and I really tried to love them!
What's not to love? They're upholstered in a camel colored linen, similar to burlap, the legs are limed and they're over 100 years old.
Here's what they meant by "limed" legs. The legs look to me like they were just half stripped of their paint. I would have preferred a solid wood.
The fabric is not a warm color at all. In fact it looks dead in my house.
Granted, it is beautiful and would work somewhere else, but not with what I'm planning for the new house. I was hoping for a warmer color.
I thought about reupholstering just the cushion in leather and stripping the legs, but at the end of the day, it's all about comfort.
Mr. A tested the chairs for comfort and they failed!
He said he couldn't imagine eating a long, relaxing dinner sitting in this chair!
I guess that's because they're over 100 years old?
Thankfully, OKL will accept returns.
So, back to the drawing board!
