Chenille Slipcovered Wing Chair

Sometimes the universe just likes to slap you upside your head.   

This perfectly harmless looking chair arrived at my home for an update. It has since been renamed Satan, and if it wasn't someone's treasured piece of family furniture, might be a pile of smoldering ash in my back yard. 

It put up quite the fight with wonky wings, and sly assymetricality (made up word). I got it done, but not without a goodly number of bad words and extensive use of the seam ripper.

Here it is now. The fabric is a linen textured chenille with subtle metallic threads. Neutral, yet very pretty. 

Don't let the good looks fool you- it's evil ;)
