New Loot Monday: The Opus Chairs


Ah, the Opus chairs.  This improbable love story began in a circus.  She was the fierce lion-tamer’s chair, and he was the chair of the bearded woman.  She spent her days fighting passionate battles between beast and man.  He spent his quiet days as a sideshow, supporting a heavy load.  Together over long journeys by train, they fell into an enduring love.  You see, this is a love story born out of contrasts…black and white.  

After retiring from the circus and joining Loot, the Opus chairs are enjoying their quiet days together.  Painted in a shiny black lacquer and with white striped fronts and slate velvet backs, they have never looked better.  They spend their early mornings drinking coffee and playing bridge, but they love going to events…especially weddings.  


New Loot Monday: Have you met Georgina?

She’s been a member of the family for some time, but I don’t think we gave her proper introduction: Meet Georgina.

Georgina is the girl that all the other girls talk about.  Born to French royalty, Madame Georgina doesn’t speak a lick of English.  And she doesn’t care to.  As an only child, she was spoiled rotten…often going to Avenue Montaigne and buying whatever her heart desired.  As she got older, she only blossomed into the most beautiful sofa in all of Paris.  One fateful evening Georgina caught the eye of a rich oil magnate from Texas named Ted and the rest is history.  He caressed her brocade, she batted her eyelashes and said, “Oui.”  She packed up her Chanel, they sailed home on his yacht, and eventually built a castle in the hills of Texas.  She is not friendly, never has been and her beauty still makes the other girls green with envy.  Of course, not her perfect shade of mossy green, but green nonetheless.

Her bark is worse that her bite. Come visit us in the warehouse to see the beauty for yourself!
