The hunt for red in October

What's not to love about red? It symbolizes strong emotions. It brightens our lives. It stimulates us. And it never goes out of style.

  1. I'll take them soon as we have a permanent place to keep them! What a collection of beauty. I can't to wait to see the beige chair become a red chair. Will it be dyed or new fabric all together?

  2. @Midcenturymadam: It's getting brand new fabric in a beautiful loopy boucle! You won't be able to recognize it as the same chair, I bet.

  3. I also am excited to see the chair - how fun!

  4. Dana, this is a treat...i am a huge fan of the color...and am teased for wearing reds frequently

  5. @Jenny: I'm excited too. Just seeing the fabric on the bolt was amazing, so I know the finished chair will be gorgeous.

  6. @Sudha: You are now our official red wearer, and I dedicate this post to you. :)

  7. Those are crazy amazing! Can't decide which I love the most. The clock. Definitely the clock. Or the lamp. Or the chair and ottoman.

  8. @DearHelenHartman: The buyer of the clock was ecstatic with her purchase, and two good friends of ours (whom we met when they made their first purchase from the store right after we first opened) bought the chair and ottoman. The red lamp is still for sale in our Etsy store. :)
