Every step of the process of getting these chairs was riddled with hiccups, they even made two in the wrong fabric. RH customer service was apologetic and super helpful in trying to get the problem fixed. They have agreed to pay to have them reupholstered here instead of reordering from the manufacturer (which would take until May at the earliest). The fabric is an ivory linen, so hopefully it won't be too hard to find a match (RH apparently can't get me the fabric from the manufacturer). I'm annoyed because it adds another thing on my to-do list, but grateful that they are open to accommodating a quicker resolution.
Besides getting the final two chairs looking like the rest, I also need to get the chairs treated by Fiber Care to protect them from any stains. I should get the ball rolling on that sooner rather than later because I have lots of red wine drinking friends!
It's been frustrating but I'm just glad that I have eight amazing new chairs. To celebrate, I set the table. I definitely felt like a little girl having a fake tea party, but it was kind of fun. Now I need to invite some people over for dinner!
I do need to find a new buffet/sideboard...this one is way too rustic. It's from my husband's bachelor pad days and is from World Market. Looking to go a little longer, skinnier, and maybe a little more modern. The hunt is officially on!
Don't want the booze to be too far away!
