We Approve of Our Throne, Yes - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal

We Approve of Our Throne, Yes
We Approve of Our Throne, Yes

Ok, can I just say here the following:
1) I love antiques and "antiquing," as it were.
2) I am quite straight.

I've been trying to find some 70's modern furniture for the living room in our house. My favorite antiques mall just opened their new space so I went this weekend. Holy cow, so much fantastic furniture, including this throne - one of a matching set.

And I want them. They won't fit anywhere in the house as they're this odd blend of Ming oriental carving and Victorian fabric (it may be original, but it looks wrong to me). They are INCREDIBLE and I want them.

But, I did find some great orange leather chairs that could work as extra seating. Andd some really fantastic lamps that need to be rewired.

Oh yeah. Love antiques.
Also: straight, thanks.

I *do* have to question the straight statement there...

You question. I'll go steal your girlfriend. :D

Need any assistance rewiring the lamps? I'm a damn fine electrician. Ok, a pretty decent one, but whatever.

Nah. I spent plenty of time rewiring much more complex lamps in high school. A two-prong plug is crazy simple to fix. :) Thank you, though; I know you're just trying to steal my throne though.

I definitely can't say that I'm NOT trying to steal your throne. :)

I didn't question the straightness at all, as to me you looked very Henry VIII from Tudors. And that man pulled a lot of tail.

Good lord, so much sex in that series. Is that even remotely historically accurate?

Hmm... Compelling reason to buy a throne!

I was on my own. The people I know that like to antique with me are always out of town! Did you see all my hat photos?

Antique mall = where? I love antiquing. Harder with stroller, but still possible.
