Blue, Blue… Blue Green Chair… And Ottoman!! Sorry, a little Elvis overcame me!! This is a fantastic vintage reclining chair and ottoman that has been reupholstered in a gorgeous royal blue and iridescent green tone on tone striped fabric with button detail, arm covers, a headguard, and two matching throw pillows. This fabric is a phenomenal eye teaser!! In a darker room the fabric takes on a darker navy, almost black color, but in a room with brighter lighting, depending on the angle, the royal blue or iridescent green is more prominent. It’s FABULOUS!! This set is attributed to the wonderful Monroe chair by Selig, but the body of the chair is also very similar to the style and quality of Edward Wormley for Dunbar… it’s just awesome!! Both the chair and ottoman stand beautifully on straight, tapered wood legs and the tall back of the chair reclines. It has continual reclining positions so you can recline just a little, a lot, and everything in-between. There is no footrest attached to the chair, so that’s where the matching ottoman comes in!! You decide if you want your feet up or not! And talk about comfortable!! This is exactly the chair and ottoman you want in front of the television in your living room or in front of the fireplace with a book on a cold, rainy day. They would be wonderful in the corner of your bedroom or in the sitting room next to a gorgeous floor lamp. It is mid-century modern, but it will blend in beautifully with many design styles and décor. Comfort, versatility, and superb style all wrapped into this dynamic duo. What are you waiting for? Make this exquisite set yours!!
