So the upholsterer delivered my chairs today. Here they are sitting outside my cube at the office:
If they look a little different than you expected, well, you'd be correct. They put the fabric on backward. As in, you are seeing the reverse side. The one with all of the stiching from the beautiful embroidery. Yeah.
This is what they should look like. It's actually not too bad ... from a distance. But when you get close it is painfully obvious (at least to me ... and everyone else in the office, for that matter).
This whole project has been one big comedy of errors, so we all had a good laugh when they came in. I'm dropping them off to be fixed this weekend, and I think I'm going to demand a discount, too!
