Monkeying Around

OK, so I know it’s uncool to like Pottery Barn furniture,

that it’s much cooler to go to ABC and pick out a vintage Suzani-covered chair,

and that it’s much cooler yet to high tail it to Marrakesh and go shopping with the lovely Maryam for your own Suzani to take home and bring to the upholsterer,

but I can’t help coveting this wildly cheerful adult armchair from the PB Kids catalogue for my deep reddish-pink fireplace room. (I'd accessorize with a gorgeously embroidered/appliqued pillow of some sort.)

Monkey see, monkey want.

what is it with Pottery Barn, is it an upscale IKEA? I suppose I should google and have a look! Anyway, monkey buy!

I think it's very cute.

You're so funny. This chair is adorable! I am really wanting a chair with some cool crewel work.

Imelda, Am off to the Cape for a week and will post shoes upon return!

Wendyb, Thanks!

Maryam, It's crewel to be kind . . .

Call me monkey meat, but I like that chair, too!
