Love Valorie and her amazing home! She is a master at bringing an eclectic mix together and making it sing!

I'd upholster it -- cover it in a thin layer of batting, staple fabric inside the molding, add some cording to cover the staples, and maybe button tuft it (staple spots to the wall, then glue on fabric covered buttons?

White all the way! I have stainless because the builder put it in, and I hate it. And I think that in time, Stainless will become passe -- something that eventually looks "so early 200'0's". White is timeless.

Stunning -- you did such an amazing job -- somehow to me it feels like you took in and cared for an old stray dog brought him back to good health and happiness...

I don't understand this Apartment Therapy post at all -- I'm assuming that by "cheap" paint AT means mainstream brands like Behr and Valspar -- both of those brands *consistently* beat out expensive brands like Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore in rigorous national tests done by that magazine that does consumer testing (not sure if I can mention it here...)

Beautiful! While my house is full of color, seeing a house like this sometimes makes me long for a space that is more serene. Really well done!

I'm one for leaving it as it is (beautiful color of blue on the current upholstery), or at the very least not that cream fabric. The cream is bland to me, and that the pattern is so large it wouldn't translate well on such a small chair...

Aferal -- we got the barrel chairs from www.PalmBeachRegency.com, and had them shipped to us. I've actually seen one other pair go through their store since we purchased, so you might ask them to look out for a pair for you...

Emily the owner here -- thank you all so much for the kind kind comments -- I am just tickled that so many people like what we've done with the house. Honestly, this feature for Apartment Therapy was great motivation to work on it, as a few months ago we had fallen into a bit of a 'tired-of-moving-in slump.' I only wish you all could see the crazy watermelon pink we've painted the office -- Sherwin Williams Grenadine! :-) Thanks again -- all your comments made my day.

1. The item is vintage or antique.
2. The item is no longer manufactured.
3. We could not locate a source for the item.
4. The source from which we purchased the item did not wish to be
5. The item is a personal possession, and the owner could not provide
purchasing information.
6. The item was hand-made, and no project instructions are available.

Sigh. WAH! Want that sofa!
