blue chair


Once upon a time, my parents got this chair at a rummage sale. All the years I was growing up, I remember it in a corner of a living room and then later a bedroom, covered in worn soft straw yellow gold velvet. When it was my turn to have it, I recovered it with blue. Now twice-recovered, but still blue, it is the most comfortable reading chair in the house. My children do not realize that it is still gold in my mind.

Oh that gold chair! I think we paid $5 for it! Love the drawing and the memory.

Wow. Gorgeous color, especially for me after just seeing the Hockney show!

What a wonderful chair and such a lovely story attached to it. I think the touches of gold on the blue are just beautiful.
