Finally here and worth the wait. Purchased off the floor for 50% off at a Laura Ashley sale. Belly the cat seems to think the chair was a gift especially for her and spends hours rolling around and napping on it (and at the same time, reinforcing Farmer Joe's suspicion that black furniture with white animals may not be entirely practical). We did have a near disaster last night when Belly strolled in to go to bed on her favourite chair, only to find Georgia the Corgi already curled up on it. A quick intervention and reshuffle by Farmer Joe and all was well.
Apologies for the terrible photo - black velvet seems impossible to photograph indoors, and Farmer Joe refused to carry the piece onto the front lawn just so I could get a better shot.
