Dee groovy? No, dee gorgeous

A George II mahogany card table
The rectangular fold over top with rounded projecting corners, the interior with candlestands, money wells and a contemporary style petit point floral playing surface, drawer to frieze on round tapered legs headed by lapets.

A 19th century wing and roll arm gentleman's chair, possibly Irish
The upholstery worn, on block legs carved with harebells and with 'C' scroll corner brackets to the front and sides, the legs united by rail stretchers.

Now playing: Deee-Lite - Power of Love (Zanizibar Vocal Mix)

Yes, and yes. Wrap them both up, please, and send them my way. And I would leave that chair as-is, though with a cushion added for the seat, perhaps in a pinstriped fabric that echoes the colours of the existing pattern.
