close kin to the couch magpie shot

Magpie Musing just posted a bit about a coat she used to wear, about which she had this to say:

I used to wear it. I’d wear it with jeans and a black turtleneck, and I got lots of compliments. The jacket is, after all, eye-catching. And every time someone said something, I got to reply merrily “Thank you. I went out and shot a couch.”

Check out the photo, and look at this:

It would seem that the couch that she shot was a close relative of these chairs, which were my grandmother’s. I recently inhereted these 1920s-era chairs, which are now in bad need of re-upholstery, and are sitting in my basement:

Eery, isn’t it?
