Todd Oldham + La-Z-Boy = Happy Seat



todd oldham loveseat

Recently found at a consignment store:  this little loveseat in a fabric that looks a little retro to me.  I was surprised to find it was made by La-Z-Boy and was designed by none other than Todd Oldham.  It was almost brand new and in excellent condition. The salesman was funny.  He said the owner had called the fabric “happy.”  He thought the owner was silly and just could not understand how a fabric could be happy.  Well, I understood that.  The fabric did look “happy” to me.  I thought the colors would go well with a rug that I had just purchased. It is soooo comfortable…a great little nook for me and a babygrand or two.  I’m not usually into this style of furniture, but maybe I am changing.  I mean, after all, it is so happy.   Sold!

I’m not sure where I’ll eventually put it.  Come on now, I know I’m not the only one who buys something without knowing exactly where it will go!  For now, it is keeping the cow company.  Maybe I’ll paint a smile on her face.
