So I need your help friends, you smart and resourceful brainiacs. OK, no more buttering up. I went out on a mission today to reunite myself with the chairs above. I was sure that we had been separated at birth, but alas, it was not meant to be. I was head over heels for them when I spotted them on craigslist, but they showed signs of a little too much love in person. Nonetheless, if someone was willing to resuscitate them I think they could look amazing. So if you're a local and are interested in this twosome, shoot me an email and I'll introduce you, tout de suite.
Now on to my plea for help. After passing up the chairs, I spotted the rug above. And I fell for it. Hard. It's a good bit more moolah than I would like to pay, but it's pulling at my heartstrings. I have never seen one quite like it. It is advertised as vintage and I think it is. The condition is slightly worn, but still in very good shape. The photos do not do justice to the colors. They are bright and beautiful. The design is raised all over, sort of crewel-like and it appears to be wool. The genius, La Lampshade, suggested it may be needlepointed by hand, and I would have to agree. Now, has anyone seen anything like it before? Know where I can do some comparison shopping perhaps? Any information would be greatly appreciated. I know one of you design addicts can hook me up with some details. So come on now, spill the beans!
