All Rise – The Duke of Windsor Chair

SONY DSC

I often wonder what my furniture thinks of me. Does my living room approve of my friends? Does my couch appreciate my commitment to eat at the dinner table?  Does my furniture think feng shui is just a bunch of hogwash?

If my walls do talk, the stories they must share with my home furnishings must be informative, possibly scandalous and often embarrassing. These walls have only known me for a short while so their stories can only be brief anecdotes at best. But what about the things my Duke of Windsor chair might say?

Oh, this is ridiculous. My Duke of Windsor chair wouldn’t say anything to tarnish my reputation. With twelve years of service, he has been the most consistent thing in my life. It would be silly to call him a sidekick. There’s no need to refer to it as, “your Grace.” That is not the kind of relationship established here. There is a bond built over time and common understanding built around necessity. I need it, it needs me.

If my Duke of Windsor chair were to talk, it would simply tell stories of past glories, party fables, quiet moments with sincere company and quite possibly a dirty limerick or two.

Feizy Rug Introduction

Do you remember your first steps?

You might remember the first time you stepped barefoot onto grass and the way your footprint was left behind on the bent and broken leaves. Maybe you can remember your first steps on sand and the trouble with locating balance and proper footing.

You might remember the first time you wore mom or dad’s shoes and how each step felt a great deal larger than any of your previous steps. Perhaps you can recollect the first time you threw caution aside and stepped out on the dance floor. Side note – I have never seen a carpeted dance floor and because of that I fail to understand the expression, “cut a rug.”

Speaking of dancing, I remember impersonating James Brown on a slick bowling alley floor. I also recall cracking my second IPod on cold, hard Mexican tile. I remember the day I realized that having a rug at home replaces the need to constantly wear socks. Rest assured, you’ll remember your first steps on a Feizy Rug.
