monogramming makes it better...

i have loved these chairs since i saw them in cottage living (one of my all time fav mags) a year or so ago. i love the numbers on the backs of the chairs. can't you see yourself at a dinner party and the hostess tells you to "go sit in chair #3"! i think its so innovative.

so why does monogramming things make me happy? it's not like i have a ton of stuff in my own house monogrammed...a shower curtain in my guest bath, bar glasses, a llbean handbag, and of course the wedding towels that everyone gets when they get married. i think it just makes it personal. a couple of years ago at the charleston symphony showhouse, one of the designers put a huge monogram on a slipcovered wingchair and i loved it. i guess i am in love with the unique monogram...the ones that are done in a different script, or in a funky pattern, or on an unexpected item.
