A Purchase for our Master

Over the summer I made an impulsive decision to buy an upholstered chair for our master bedroom.  Very unlike me when it comes to furniture and especially when I don't have the design of a room entirely fleshed out, but in this particular case, the deal was too good to pass up.

Meet Elise…

You can find her at Ballards - the Elise Club Chair.  I got her for less than one third of the full retail price.

She is perfect.  She is smaller than most club chairs and fits perfectly in the small corner of our master bedroom.  She is extremely comfortable and very stylish.  I love her waterfall skirt.  Of course, I think she pairs well with the Colefax and Fowler Bowood fabric I plan to use in our master.

At first I wasn't sure if I liked her accentuated shaped arms, but they have grown on me and now I love them.   I now have started to notice these accentuated shaped arms in other rooms that I have loved.


This chair is a great option if you need a smaller scale club like chair but don't want to sacrifice on comfort and style!  I highly recommend it!


  1. I think she is perfect! This is a timeless classic that you will enjoy for years to come no matter how many times your design plans change.

  2. Cute chair. I like your decision to accent with the Colefax and Fowler fabric, it's one of my favorite prints.

  3. Elise is gorgeous! She looks so elegant and comfy.

  4. I love that chair, especially with the curve in the arm. I can't wait to see what you do with the bedroom, especially because that fabric is a favorite of mine too.

  5. We ordered Elsie for a client's master bedroom makeover! They love it and it looks great in the space. Dying that you're using that Colefax & Fowler print. So timeless and pretty!

  6. So glad I found this. I have a small corner in my master that needs a reading chair. Now I just hope I can find a discount as deep as you did!
