We love red. Real red. Real RAL 3000 kind of red. We've used it for stuff in the past. But red can be tricky. It's hard to match. It's hard to be double dare sure. When we looked at the pleather/naugahyde books the samples come in these baby-pinky-finger swatches. We "thought" we had it right. I sweated it out until the chairs came back and Saints Be Praised! It's the right red. I have done it wrong in the past. It wasn't without precidence. You think the red is right and then you realize it matches the rest of your stuff like the red lipstick on Jack Nicholson's Joker Face. Just plain SCARY.
But this time. I am in love. With a set of chairs. And I'm not even embarassed to admit it. They look mediocre in our temporary apartment - but in the words of Tony the Tiger - they're gonna be ggrrrrrrrrrEAT - in the CMR when it is done. GRRRRREAT!!
