Isn't it lovely? That's what the chaise I bought last November looks like. Those are little palm trees on the fabric. It's just in front of the fireplace in the living room.

Comfortable? To be honest, I've really no idea, as it was promptly claimed for sole use by the pup who fancies herself a princess. Every now and then she'll let one of us come sit with her, but only so long as one is petting her. When one stops, or she bores, she stretches out a long, dainty leg and shoves one off.

She's very pretty, but still.

To lay claim to for oneself or as one's right: appropriate, assume, commandeer, preempt, seize, take, usurp.
