Fiorentina

Remember way back in December when I was trying to pick a fabric for my little gilt rope bench?
I asked for opinions, and I got them. Even though La Fiorentina won the popular vote, Les Touches won the electoral vote. Okay, just kidding. Seriously, it was close though. In addition to comments, I received several emails from both friends and readers I never knew I had. I was still conflicted so I decided to buy both remnants, get them in the room and then make a decision. Well, the Etsy seller with the Les Touches was less than responsive when I asked questions about the fabric, so I went with the more helpful Arianna Belle who sold me a remnant of La Fiorentina at a very reasonable price in an expeditious manner. Sometimes customer service wins! So, here is my newly upholstered stool in La Fiorentina . . .
I'm loving it. The rest of the room still needs additional tweaking before revealing more, so stay tuned. Sorry for the pitiful iPhone photo. I snapped this a few days ago. Our weather here is beyond depressing and rainy so no good photos for a while, I'm afraid. Gray days and a nasty cold are making for a dreary January thus far, but I've hunkered down with some of these . . .
and they're helping me feel a little better. Okay, so they're not the healthiest cold remedy, but they make me happy and that's more than soup and tea have done. Any port in the storm.

I love it! It turned out great!

She's a pillow seller right? It's never even occurred to me to contact them about remnants. Great idea!

You have me chomping at the bit to see the rest of the room now. And that candy? I think I'm salivating...

If you lived any closer that stool would not be safe from ending up in my clutches. It looks beautiful!

I'm in the midst of a nasty sinus infection. So full of tea and soup I could float. Perhaps a Goo Goo Cluster RX is in order. :0)

You made the right choice! I hope you feel better soon and this weather will go back where it came from...Seattle probably.
