Last week I received a new catalog for Home Decorator's Collection. While this catalog has been around for many years, I was never incredibly impressed with their products. The only time that I ordered from them was in 2004. I ordered a set of Louis Chairs that I was going to have reupholstered. Well, they sent 4 of the chairs with a white wood frame and then told me that they were out of stock and couldn't send the other two. Needless to say, I was furious. So after a "talk" with management, I received the additional two chairs for free (with a dark wood frame.) What was I going to do with 4 white chairs, and 2 mahogany?... As it turns out, I painted the frames black. As you can see from this picture (from last year), I never replaced the fabric, and now they have been booted from the dining room to make room for my mother's dining room chairs.
So, (as I digress) I usually don't pay their catalog much attention, but this one made me take another looksie. And boy, am I glad that I did! Looks like someone's really upped their game!
