I had ordered some artwork and a chair from Joss and Main. I wanted the art work to signify that in this room a boy was raised and here he grew and became a man with his mother's help of course. So even if my son taunts me and jokes that I erased his presence because I redecorated his room, I wanted to put reminders of what the room was and whose it was.
I also ordered this chair after I fell in love with my friend Catherine's toile wing chair which I like to call the most incredible find. When I saw it I couldn't get over that someone had let it go. So after that I was on a mission. I was in search of a toile wing chair. I searched on Etsy and Ebay and all the neighborhood antique stores but nothing. And then Joss and Main had this chair. The Riley Chair. Now it's not what I truly wanted but something about it stood out and gave me a home, charming and comforting feeling. I also loved that the print had images of Philadelphia. Since we live in Pennsylvania I thought it was perfect.
So at the end of the day I am pleased with my choices.
