Tufting On the Arms

I saw this chair at CC today, with fabulous tufting on the back and the arms...


And I quickly thought of these chairs, which are, incidentally, never that far out of my mind.
{How could I ever forget a pink velvet like that?}



I'd love to dedicate some time today to finding an inexpensive version of this lovely chair, but it's not gonna happen. Anyone else up for it? Copy Cat Chic?

Oooh that pink, and velvet too, is as good as it gets! The tufting brings a richness to the chairs (considering their simple lines).

I feel like the big fat cheshire cat in Alice in Wonderland, smiling ear to ear - I found a tufted loveseat at a local 2nd hand shop for a song and it is crying for a fun color. love that pink....
now to find those chairs for you....

Had tufting on the brain, myself - for a glider in the nursery. However, after careful consideration (of potential baby spit-up settling in tuft nooks) I've decided against it.
Guess it'll have to wait for another day, another project {sigh}

I could take the chairs or leave them, but I want that cabinet...

i know the point is to have tufting on the sides, but this one is kinda similar:

it comes in red too, but out of stock:

this has side tufting but more masculine-type chair:

I'll keep my eyes open for a decently priced chair. So pretty!

The pink velvet is to die for!!!!!! So pretty! There are some super luxe brown and pewter velvet chairs very similar from z-gallerie...

The velvet chairs are lovely, but look at that dog!! Perfection! My sister has a Bernese Mountain Dog like the one in the picture so I am quite partial.

These have a less contemporary feel but still the same basic idea:

Ralph Lauren makes a chair called the Hudson River Valley Wing Chair that puts a slightly different spin on the chair you like.

This is an interesting take on tufted arms: http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_0Nzq_GuP63M/SzDnUsGBRTI/AAAAAAAAB54/RmrDJdI_Mjs/s320/Blog+12.2109+015.jpg (circainteriors.blogspot.com)

Don't know if that helps. Good luck in your search!

It's not pink, but still fun!

Copy Cat Chic said...

or...this one from JCP, but there's no tufting on the arms, just on the back...: http://www.jcpenney.com/jcp/X6.aspx?DeptID=71253&CatID=71253&Grptyp=PRD&ItemId=16b29ea

I love your blog!! I visit everyday and quite honestly have no idea how you do it. Two small girls, a new baby girl, beautiful home, and constantly coming up with great new (and fully implemented in your own home) ideas - not to mention taking the time to share them with us.

YOU ROCK!!

I love anything tuffed. Our guest bedroom has a tufted headboard. I love it.

sarah said...

i'm working on recovering a chair, similar in shape, but without the tufts. it's currently an old orange velvet and i love it but it's dirty and needs to come off. pink might be the next best thing!

Yummy!I remember some goregeous pink velvet chairs in the C& B catalog a while back. Alas, no tufting.

Flick, said...

They are lovely, that tufting is great on the back and the arms... I will keep my eyes open for any bargains!

I am OBSESSED with velvet furniture right now. Constantly on the lookout for velvet couches (on a budget of course) especially lately.

Studio News said...

The dog!!! Bernese Mountain Dogs are far more beautiful than a chair!!

Sorry! Although I am a designer my heart belongs to these dogs.
Loved the post!!

This is an interesting pair of chairs.

Kate said...

I have a chair (currently on my back porch), which I found in an alley. I want to get it reupholstered and would love to do this look. Any idea for an online resource for this type of pink velvet? I'm so clueless about what type of fabric I need for a chair like that.

I absolutely love those pink chairs.
