Friday Favourite ~ Hidden treasures







One of the little joys about our job is the fun of discovering what I call hidden treasures. This week there were a few, but one I thought I would highlight as a favourite was this cute bedroom or occassional chair.
I love this style of chair and am always drawn to them. You may remember it, as it looks in the first picture, from a previous blog earlier this week. When I had a chance to have a good look at it I realised the covering was a slip cover that some clever person had made. Usually people do this as the fabric underneath is damaged, stained etc. So initially as I saw the first peep of the original fabric underneath, I thought damn, the original fabric is so lovely what a shame!
So you can imagine I was very pleased when it turned out that not only was the original fabric lovely but I can find no trace of damage or stains and it has lovely pleats, piping and upholstery studs on the back. So it is off to find a new home for this lovely hidden treasure.
