You know how when you have a new home you just have to have new stuff to fill it with.
This is where the fun and angst start!
All of our other furniture was dark and it was time for a change, we had a large square table with 8 chairs, sorry it will just not go in the new space. Wrong colour, wrong style
We didn’t advertise the set for sale; as a young couple who had just transferred from Brisbane came to buy something else we had advertised, (selling furniture that would not fit in with the new theme) and asked if we were selling the dining suite
We sold it dirt cheap, I think they deserved it, they also had two young daughters and were starting out, felt good to help
Anyhow, after agonising and searching for months to get the table at the right size and colour (not to dark, not to light, not to narrow) I found a dining table at Russell Furnishings in Nedlands 1.1metre’s in width and 2.8metre’s in length

The chairs came from Scurr’s on Beaufort St. So comfortable and matched the table. (we practiced getting up and down many times on many chairs) so much so that when I get up, and decided to get back down again; Michael had removed the chair to place it back where it belonged, and I ended up on the floor.
Michael insisted on needing only 6, I knew we would need 8 at some time and the plan was to get two fabric chairs to use at either end when needed
|Extra chairs sit either side of the wall unit|
After a year of searching and trying to decide the style of chair I wanted, as I was on the verge of ordering 2 fabric chairs from Matt Blatt, I thought I would pay Scurr’s one last visit.
Lucky for me they had just introduced the same chair but as a carver, which is also a bit wider, so fits perfectly at the ends when needed . So I bought two of them for what I was going to pay for 1 of the fabric chairs

I am a happy little vegemite, also I don’t need to worry about the cats sitting on them and leaving fur everywhere. Don’t you just hate it when you visit someone, sit down, stand up, and your arse is covered in fur. Now I am on the hunt for some large cushions to sit on them for decoration.
What do you think?
