This chair is gorgeous. It’s by Tokidoki and is covered in a faux-suede fabric with a typically Japanese print which manages to be cute, sexy and grotesque all at the same time.
I love the expression Okey-dokey. It’s used in Scotland more than here and conveys the warmth and friendliness that you find north of the border; it’s so much nicer than O.K. This is why I like the name Tokidoki, although I’m told that it’s pronounced with a short “o” and that it means “sometimes”. But to me it’s Tokidoki, to rhyme with Okey-dokey.
I’d love to own the chair, but I’m not sure that it would be okey-dokey to do so. There’s the famous Punch cartoon where the introduction of a single cushion which didn’t quite match led to the gradual redecoration of the entire room. I can just about afford the chair, but I’m not sure that I want the rest of my house to look cute, sexy and grotesque as well.
