Dead Ringer Fabric?

This fabric, Botanical Fern, by Schumacher caught my eye in the latest issue of HB.


Tom Scherer for HB
(Room designed by my boyfriend, Tom Scherer.)

I noticed it primarily because it's a dead-ringer for the Brunschwig & Fils' Les Fougeres which covers a chair we inherited from Ben's Grandparents. ....Which then reminded me that I'd love to rework the chair...
If only I felt inspired over what to do with it.
I think all its good karma is being zapped by that pirate chest it's been forced to sit near for almost two years. I have no love whatsoever for said chest, but my bluff has been called on all threats to put it in the garden shed....or paint it pink.
It's definitely the Wagon Wheel Coffee Table in our house....

What a fantastic chair!

Hmm the chest... Is there somewhere unexpected you could put it? I like trunks when they kind of surprise you. A random hallway with art above?

I have ALWAYS wanted that wagon-wheel coffee table!

Yay, another Texan AND Longhorn! How exciting is that?! Love your header photos! You'll figure that chair out... I've learned to wait for the epiphany on things like that.

Too funny, I just bought some fern fabric for a closet curtain project, perhaps you'll find just the perfect thing, I know you'll know it when you see it! *Amy

Definitely a dead ringer fabric. Good call! And the wagon wheel comment is priceless. We all have one in our house somewhere!

Ferns designs are gorgeous, they make a simple tropical calmness with in the room I could imagine hiking on the mountains. Any ways love the chest.

Ha! I made one of those chests when I was just out of college. Thought I was the bees knees for doin' it, too!

Fun fabric!

I wouldn't give up my 'treasure chest' for the world. It came over on the boat with my Grandmother and Mom in the 1920's.

One woman's 'wagon wheel' is another woman's Yee Ha!

You could always put a chair cover on it while you are deciding what you really want to do with it.
