Chair Affair chair selection

Went in the crazy torrential downpour this noon to select a free chair at the
NW Furniture Bank: 2650 E. Bay Street, Tacoma, WA 98421 for the Chair Affair fundraiser... 2010 Chair Affair: Furnishing Hope will be held at the Tacoma Art Museum on the evening of March 4th, 2010. This is a fundraiser where artists use a chair/other piece of furniture as a canvass to be displayed in the silent and/or live auction.

So many to choose from! I like the one on the far left and right as I was thinking Sumi-e.
I picked out this one - think black with gold accents, red seat cushion and somehow incorporating some Sumi-e cats...

Here is my selection, resting comfortably for the ride home in my trusty Subaru Outback...
