Guest Post : Black Velvet Chair

Sarah, Thankyou so much for asking me to Guest post on your blog, “My first little place…” is one of the first blogs I “bookmarked” before I actually knew how to “Follow” someone. It is amazing to me that you find my blog interesting and of course I am honoured that you asked to write a post about my favourite chair….as chairs are my very favourite furniture item!

So my favourite chair, it is a Indian rams head chair, they sell them at Interiors Online for $1,050, however my chair was purchased from a retro furniture shop store in Redfern Sydney. Whilst walking with a colleague I caught a glimpse of a chair, it was sparkly silver and instantly commanded attention. I decided to go back a week later, to my disappointment the chair was no longer in the store…. I asked the husband and wife sales assistants
“You had a silver chair last week”
Husband “That chair sold on the weekend”
 Wife “Is'nt there another one out the back?”

 I am now the owner of an absolutely stunning Indian rams head chair that I purchased for the “steal” price of $250. I had the shop cover the chair cushion in a woven blue fabric, the cushion is removable so I have been changing it up and customizing the colour to suit my mood. At the moment I am loving the monochrome look of black and white stripe, I wonder what Ikat fabric would look like on the chair? 

The chair sits at the bottom of the stairs and is used daily.
