We bought two gorgeous vintage leather club chairs recently. They were looking a bit tired, but have cleaned up beautifully. We polished the leather, recovered the old seat pads in Hessian sacking – and have now found the perfect cushion just to complete the look.
We received this Lois cushion in orange plaid from Made.com this week. The overall red/orange appearance works perfectly with the rich chestnut brown leather, whilst the subtle touches of green & blue in the tartan pick up on the lettering in the Hessian sacking.
The fabric is very good quality and we’re also happy with the finishing in terms of stitching, zips etc. The cushion combines tradition with modernity which is just what we were after. We’ve put one of the chairs next to the window (and bookshelf) in our main bedroom. The perfect spot for a quiet – and now very comfortable read.
We’ve featured Bonnie & Buttermilk on our blog a couple of years ago raving about their funky women’s clothes. But now we’ve discovered that they now do a selection of bright & cheery homewares as well. This cushion is one of their collection which currently includes make up bags, shoppers and laptop bags.
This week’s blog is a small homage to a glorious colour. O just had to be for orange.
We are big fans, and judging by our popular photos on Flickr and items that always sell well on H is for Home, so are a lot of you out there.
Orange has the wonderful ability to look warm & cosy in the winter or lively & fresh in the summer.
Orange objects really catch the eye. It enables them to shout loudly in a collection of other brightly coloured pieces.
Alternatively, it’s perfect as a highlight colour within a muted décor or against natural materials.
We’ve given a few different chairs the orange treatment!
We did a G is for… Garden blog post a couple of months ago having just planted out some annuals. Our French marigolds are doing well with all the sunshine & showers we’ve been having.
Till next week! x
