Patent Moments

Thank you so much for your sweet comments on the ortho office before and after!  I can’t wait to show you more.  Speaking of before and afters – I’ve got this chiavari chair that has been stuck in “before” mode for about a year now.

I’m thinking of covering its fine bones in patent.  I really love the look of pairing patent leather with a more traditional style chair.  I think too much patent can go to a bad, tacky place fast, so I like it in very small doses.

What do you think of the look?  If I do tire of it, it won’t be hard to change.  This chair is more of an extra chair that floats around from room to room when we have guests therefore the black kind of goes with everything.  I think this gold lady wants to be dressed up – do you agree or disagree?

Oh and I’m pretty sure I’ll need these patent loafers to go with my new chair.  Just imagine the horror and embarrassment if I didn’t have the correct pair of shoes to go with the new chair.

    The shoes are necessary, it would be such a faux pax not to have the right shoes for your floater chair. I think the patent is a great idea, different but so interesting!

    Not convinced about the look – but the shoes are nice!
