coffee and cream...


When something feels right to you and then it seems to hit a positive note with others, the idea of tweaking it isn't always on the top of the list, at least that's the way I feel about it. That was the case with the HARLOW chair in the rust/orange/mango floral fabric.

It took awhile to get all the pieces together--the right fabric on the perfect frame with the appropriate chair legs. Making all that work along with keeping in mind manufacturing and shipping constraints in order to stay within a reasonable price point (under $300 retail), AND infusing quality and comfort was enough of a challenge for all involved in producing this chair. So when it was finally accomplished, I wanted to move onto the next design challenge, NOT repeat this one....UNTIL, the fabric team I was working with said they wanted to develop our look in a "coffee & cream" shade.

OK, now it's all over. COFEE and CREAM!

Are you kidding me? Of course I wanted to develop it in coffee & cream. All they had to do was find a way to work in the words, chocolate, cheese, meatloaf sandwich, pasta, cake, pie, cheeseburger & fries, bread and wine into the conversation and I would have rolled over and played dead. Well, luckily for me they didn't so I was spared the humiliation, but we did go forth with the coffee & the cream!

May I present to you my HARLOW chair in coffee and cream now on SALE at OVERSTOCK for $269.99!

I've worked myself up into a serious lather. I'm making some coffee now...

and the fact that coffee is in the color really means only one thing...it would have to be my coffee drinking, book reading, blog writing chair. i mean, really, that's what it would mean.

Oh.....my....heavens......if I don't win the CNS Search & Rescue makeover, this chair is sooooo going on my MUST HAVE list! Wow. Just wow. I could so curl up in that chair and watch some HGTV with a nice mug of coffee. Btw, have you seen this: http://www.mrcoffeecafefrappe.com/default.aspx

I love the rust/orange/mango floral print fabric. That would be way at the top of my want list if it weren't for those front legs with the little wheels. I appreciate the look you're going for (and achieve) but it's not my cup of tea. It's a little too formal and delicate. I like me some clunky feet on my furniture.

Thank you for bringing it in a tan and brown version. I LOVE it. I will soon be the proud owner of two.

Another reason for me to love coffee & cream. This chair is (to borrow from you) awesome awesomeness.
Big fan of your style, blog, TV work, and the list goes on. Have a ridiculously wonderful Holiday Season!
