Post 169: Just Resting My Dragon

Have you ever smiled at a perfect stranger, not really paying attention to what they were saying, and suddenly they are your best friend and won’t shut up? Happens all the time to me. I think this Sparky is one of those types.

Took lots of pictures to show the design in the fabric
It seems to change colors depending what light it’s in
The fabric has a 20’s look to it (even though it could be reupholstered.)
Guessing it could be from the 1920’s, The Barcelona International.

A French term meaning literally ‘long chair’. Originally made in two or three sections, chaise Longue now means a couch with a rolled upholstered end and a back which does not extend the whole length of the piece. The chaise took many forms, from the Grecian designs of the Classical Revival, with sabre legs and scrolled arms, to the more massive productions of the later Victorian period. The Victorian nine-piece drawing room suite would usually include a chaise longue, a gentleman’s chair, lady’s chair, and six drawing room chairs, usually of the balloon-back type lounge.

  1. Not.A.Longue.Lizard or a Naga– possibly a revolting pheasant. With different upholstery, it could be French Prevential. And Sparky thinks this goes in hospitals, cafeterias, or a bathroom, laundry room, mud room, day care, garage, or gas station? What has he been smoking on it?
