I am on the hunt for the perfect modern club chair. This one from West Elm hit all the requirements in terms of scale, price and fabric options.
The lines look wonderful, but I prefer not to choose furnishings from a picture and West Elm doesn’t have a storefront in my town. So when it worked out that I was able to see it and sit in it on a recent trip, I was pumped. The chair checked out. It’s perfect. Sign me up.
Yesterday, I called to order fabric samples and discovered that if you live in Canada there are only two options: ink blue velvet, or patchwork. Neither is appropriate. I am bummed.
This leaves me trying to decide if I need to find a new chair, or whether I’d specify the chairs and then have them re-upholstered in a more suitable fabric. Their current price makes it a possibility against the other options I’ve found, but I’m not convinced it’s worth doing.
Which “re” would you choose? Reupholstery, revise room layout or resume the search?
