I am lucky to own several pieces of furniture that belonged to Lorena and were used at the boarding house. They came to me via my grandmother.
This is a boudoir chair, the current fabric covering is a very dark navy blue, a slip cover that I made.
Here is a photo of just the seat portion, in what may be the original fabric, or not. There are several layers of covers. I have no way to know if this bottom layer is actually the original. Another of Lorena's daughters ran a drapery shop for many years, she may have covered and re-covered these chairs.
So many heirlooms and treasured family artifacts are put away and never used. But, not this Treasure Chest item. This chair is still used today in our bedroom at the stick built.
