It looks like someone got started on a reupholstery project they didn't want to finish!
This one looks pretty good from this angle, but the back isn't done. I honestly don't know which one (if either) is the original fabric.
In my head I think I'm seeing the frame stained darker--something more walnut-y. Then I want something more neutral for the cushions. I think. And I think I want to keep them.
This is what I currently have in my front room:
I recovered these last fall. But I'm just not feeling the love anymore.... I think they're too big for my tiny front room. And maybe too...red. (And you're talking to a person who loves red!)
They do have pretty backs, but no one ever sees that the way they sit in my house!
So...I listed them on KSL.com. I haven't told dear husband yet. I don't want to see the eye roll!
