ANOTHER GREAT MID-CENTURY FIND

 

 

Granted, this loveseat looks pretty darn ‘granny’ at the moment, with its skirt and velvety yellow fabric, but before long, it will be looking very hip.  It has a wonderful shape to it, its low back broken by an elegant little pinch right where the back turns into the arms, very ‘Japonais’, very Frank Lloyd Wright… and all that tufting on the back, think of how great that will look with a graphic pattern?!  We plan on removing the skirt to expose the straight legs behind it (and possibly even replacing existing legs with a new tapered mid-century style leg which will give it even more of the feel of the period), and creating one seat cushion instead of 2- making it feel much more streamlined.  All bold, no granny!  It is always fun to look at what others have done with similar pieces, however, I was unable to find too many redos but certainly found a lot of comparable pieces…

 

 

And one great redo of a similar piece by Chairloom, love the dots, but not so much the skirt…

I am looked at a few possibilities for mine…
