I’ve been hunting for this very shade of green in fabric shops for the past few months, so when I stumbled across this slightly nuts vintage green velveteen lounge suite it was just too tempting to pass up! I promise you, you’re going to be seeing a lot more of this lovely deep green shade over the next year or so – and rightly so, it’s a really beautiful colour (even lovelier than it looks in the photos!). Because we weren’t reupholstering the chairs we decided to have them professionally cleaned, so at least we know there are no cooties hiding anywhere! The cleaners obviously used an industrial vacuum, which has disrupted the pile a bit, but I think that should settle over time. There are also a few other minor bits of wear, but on the whole the armchairs are in good condition for their years.
A great starter lounge suite for someone with a flair for the unusual!
Note: While the stitching detail gives the lounge suite quite a vintage look, I think it’s probably newer than you would think – it’s quite light when you pick it up, and the feet are made of a hard plastic, whereas if it had some serious age to it, I’d expect to see wooden feet. My guess would be that it’s in the region of thirty years old….
