My Newest Purchases-Toile Chairs!

Toile Chairs

I purchased these two chairs from Style In Scale after seeing them on the blog for sale. Toile de Jouy, sometimes abbreviated to simply "toile", is a type of decorating pattern consisting of a usually white or off-white background on which a repeated pattern depicting a fairly complex scene, generally of a pastoral theme such as (for example) a couple having a picnic by a lake. The pattern portion consists of a single color, most often black, dark red, or blue. The word toile is French -meaning "linen cloth" or "canvas" — particularly cloth or canvas for painting on. I believe this color is called agrarian red or Jamestown red


Claiming The Chairs
Renee has claimed the chairs. They remind her of when they were living in Paris. She has made a cozy living room for Etienne and herself with them.

Here they are relaxing after dinner in the living room. She has still not convinced him to remove his uniform once he is home.

He still has 12 years left before he can retire but he loves the military and may stay even longer. He thinks it best that he not share that with Renee’.
What are you thinking?
How beautiful you are and how lucky I am …stuff like that.
Oh really?
Yup!

I don’t even believe that!
