Can I get a what what?

This chair submission arrived in my inbox with nary an explanation.  There was simply a before and an after, signed by “J.”  Mysterious!  I’m not sure but I’m pretty sure that “J” is probably a very well-known celebrity.  I bet J wants to keep his or her thrift-loving identity secret, so the whole world doesn’t find out that they secretly would rather recover a moldy old chair than buy a new one for half a million dollars at Barney’s, or wherever ridiculously rich people buy furniture.  I wouldn’t know.

Possible possibilities:  Jack Johnson, James Franco, Janet Reno, Jay-Z, Jerry Seinfeld, Joey Lawrence or Joan Cusack.  Hmmmm.

 

Oh, I’m on to you Jay-Z.

    I’d use my detective skill and say this was done in a fabric shop, or an upholstery shop… see all the the fabric swatches in the back? … That or someone took their fabric selection VERY seriously….. hmm

    Beautiful job.

    Gack. Sometimes I think it’s good we don’t know what the inside of furniture looks like. What is that horse hair? Mouse fur? Details J!

    I’m going to say could also be JLo… or maybe Jewel? I dunno. But I like, even if it was from John Duggar from 19 and counting… lol

    Did you know that Jack White (of the White Stripes) had an upholstery business? True story (heard about it on NPR: http://goo.gl/fchYn)! If this is from him, there’s a chance that he stowed a record in the cushioning somewhere.

    Don’t mind me, I’m just lurking in the archives.
