So, I needed Sophia to sit somewhere and I googled “Chaise”.  Some really cool things popped up.  But, I stumbled onto this one and I was wondering…Is it me or does it look a tad uncomfortable??

I mean, it could be pretty..but not very relaxing.  The seat looks hard and the back doesn’t look like it would conform to your back.

Do you like the header?  My friend Jason made it for me.  Isn’t he awesome?!  I love it, but he doesn’t believe me.  I’m going to use it anyway :P.

  1. Madam, go to “your profile” under “users” and then once on that page, scroll down to “contact info” under which you paste in the URL to your blog in the “website” box. I just learned this. This way, when you post comments on other people’s blogs, with but a click, they can link to your blog.

  2. It’s very elegant and if the frame were silver or white, the blue would look beautiful, but I would never sit on it. For one, it looks like it’s very fragile and the cushioning doesn’t look cushy enough. So, I agree that it looks really uncomfortable.

    I love your header, as well. I especially love the mask.

  3. Love the header! I stared at it for a good two, three minutes, going oooooooooh…prettyyyyyy

    Anyway, the chaise (settee? same thing? no? I’m not sure, and am too lazy to google) looks very beautiful but, like you said, uncomfortable. Since this was a common furniture during the Regency period, I’m guessing that the ladies then had very VERY bad backs. My mom is always telling me not to slouch, or to sit in such and such a way, because it’s bad for my backbone……… now, whoever sits in THAT chair…..tsk tsk tsk

      I think they’re pretty much the same thing, but I always thought a settee was …smaller? than a chaise.

      But, there was the whole thing about women not being able to rest against the back of chair, always having to sit perfectly straight. But, seeing the furniture, I’m starting think it was just more comfortable for them to sit ramrod straight.
