All wrapped up!!!

<span class=
I'm just crazy about this look...the fact that these two chairs just so happen to be a lovely shade of yellow is great, but what I'm talking about it is their feet...what a look to wrap them up like that. Kelly went with the color coordinated approach (above), but I dig on the multi colored look below too!!

What do you think, liked the wrapped feet look too??

I don't care very much for the Hoppen foot treatment. The mom and dog owner in me looks at the extra unhemmed fabric wrapped which I am assuming is just glued on and thinks it would be a big mess in no time at all.
The designer in me does like the second chair. It looks as if the wood itself has been painted. Fun!

I don't like the fabric treatment on the feet. It sort of looks like the feet were damaged, and instead of refinishing them the owner used scraps of fabric.

Call me old fashioned but I am a little scared of it. I agree that the second chair's foot "wardrobe" is painted but, in my opinion, its still just not quite right. I am a fan of overhauling vintage finds but I think I'll stick to reupholstering and refinishing the usual and leave the reinvention of furniture feet to Kelly.

Yes that second chair is fun Laura! And I do appreciate your train of thought on Kelly's look!!

I'm a wingback girl myself - those these aren't strictly speaking wingback - they're certainly lovely to snuggle up in and feel like you're in a hidey hole :-)

I'm fine with the foot treatment - and the screaming yellow:-) - tho' you probably guessed I'd say that:-)
