Go Fourth...And Conquer

I have been trying for quite some time to use this traditional wingback chair in a more contemporary scene. This is my attempt to overcome that pesky challenge...

Happy 4th of July!
The Goods: Sofa and wingback chair are ebay finds; the coffee table is Minimodernistas; the throw pillows are Minimodernistas and Ikea (red/white stripe); All other accessories are ebay finds, DCWV, Tim Holtz, the girls' paperie, ReMent and Plan Toys.


  1. Fantastic! Love the lettered tiles.
    Happy 4th of July to you too!

  2. This is great. Patriotic, but not fussy.

  3. Love it! And happy 4th of July to you too!

  4. Been following your blog for a while but finaly found out how to put in on my favorite blog list ;-)

    I have just bought a modern dollhouse (it will arrive at the end of this month) the Lake View from The Dolls House Emporium :-)

    I want to thank you for the great inspiration that you give me and all the links that are so helpfull while I am on the search for modern/contemporary miniatures!!

    Warm mini hugs from Greece,

  5. Wing back chairs are always tricky in modern scenes. Regardless of the upholstery I think the dark stain on the legs always make them look vintage-y. I think you've incorporated it into your scene beautifully though.
    Hope you had a great 4th of July celebration =0)

  6. Thanks Kathi, Hunky Dory (love your blog) and Ann!

  7. Hi Jollie,
    How very sweet of you! I am glad that my "crazy" with this hobby inspires you. Please do share what you end up doing with the Lake View. I've always admired that dollhouse. Thank you for such kind words. Hugs right back at ya! Chuckles!

  8. Thanks Pepper!
    Hey---is it weird for you to wish me Happy 4th considering...? Ha ha! Chuckles. I took the easy route with the wingback this time, but I will try again with that chair...Hmm

  9. I just love it! I love the patriotism, the simple enduring red-white-and-blue harmony, and the fun little decorative elements. I could live in that space.

  10. Thanks Karen!
    You flatter me and my cheeks might be a tinge rouge...Smiles
    You are always welcome to live in this little space. Ha!
