Further adventures of the window seat

I wasn't completely happy with my Duncan Phyfe seat; it didn't feel quite right. Maybe because the room needs variation. I thought that all chairs and sofas should be matching, but it has now become boring. Fortunately someone has recently given me two lovely Chinese coasters.


I hope the giver will forgive me that I won't use them as intended. It's superb fabric, and my first thought was that I would use it for the firescreen. Then I realised that I could use it both for the screen and the seat.


Here is a close-up of the screen:


The fabric has a thin lining so it was easy to cut and just dab a bit of glue on the edges.

I haven't yet decided what to do with the red coaster, but I have many chair kits where it will come handy.

  1. The Chinese fabric is perfect for both the fire screen and the seat. In fact, I think that it actually has enhanced the beauty of the Duncan Phyfe seat.
