Royal Blue Victorian Velvet Chair

Thanks to those who commented on my previous post where I debated whether or not to pick up this royal blue Victorian beauty from my local Value Village.


After thinking about the chair all night and figuring out great locations to place it in my house, I came to my senses and rushed back to the store the next day. Lo and behold, the chair had been moved but was still for sale! I quickly sat down to test drive it again and refresh my memory.


The chair is definitely in great shape. The velvet is unmarred and the tufted buttons are all intact. Even the velvet on the back of the chair is clean and bright. I just can't believe that there is no pilling or rips anywhere! I also love the wood frame on this chair; it does have some scratches but that just adds to its character, right? :)


While I was poking around looking over the chair, a number of other shoppers stopped me and remarked on how great a deal the $25 chair was. I was getting thumbs-up's (and a couple of jealous looks) from the clerks and customers on my way out of the store!


I'm really happy with my purchase as it is a great accent chair that is functional and comfortable. A friend who stopped by the house yesterday called it "photogenic". It's definitely something nice to take pictures of!

  9. The funny thing is that everyone that comes over is totally drawn to this chair - kids, adults, you name it! It just has a certain appeal to it. I just love the colour so much and am so glad I picked this up last year!
