Chair #105

—Designer known

With those girly, refined drapery swags on the back I can't help but see this chair on the set of a Jane Austen film. Ribbons and frou-frou things do that.

I sometimes get the characters of Pride & Prejudice and Sense & Sensibility all mixed up. So here's my little trick to help with the characters. For Sense & Sensibility, instead I think of "Sense and Sense-a-Willoughby," which triggers in my head the characters of John Willoughby (the philandering bad guy), Colonel Brandon, the giggly Dashwood sisters, and that secretive bitch, Lucy Steele.

For Pride and Prejudice, Instead of P & P I think of B & B , you know, Mr. Bennet and Mr. Bingley. Then I remember all the Bennet girls, Mr. Collins and his patron—Lady Catherine du Bourg, Mr. Wickham (the other bad guy), Mr. Darcy (the good guy). It's a perfectly logical train of thought, don't you think?
