Yes, it truly is a round chair! Seems like something you might find in Las Vegas covered in red satin. In this case, though, it is just a very comfortable chair in a home here in Coronado. And instead of red satin, my client went with brown velvet. I keep thinking I've seen everything when it comes to furniture styles and what can be slipcovered, and inevitably something else comes along to, once again, show me this isn't the case.
