I went to one of our local thrifts, the Idaho Youth Ranch, and came upon this chair.
It is a very unique chair.
A Scandinavian, mid-century design with a gold and black woven wool upholstery.
I stared at it and "ooooooh and aaaaaaahd" over it.
Sweet little button tufts at the lower back of the chair.
Classic Eames legs.
It would not fit my decor, but I loved it.
I didn't buy it.
I came back a few days later, and it was still there.
It was calling my name,
but I still didn't buy it.
A week later, the chair is still there.
I figured it was maybe too ugly for the general public (?).
It woo'd me and kept calling my name.
I bought it. $13.00.
It doesn't match anything.
And, I Loooove it.
This picture does not really do it justice, and please nevermind the messy house. ; )
Are you diggin' the 60's fabric I put over the back of the chair?
Pillows will be made.
Here's another one or two.
And so I feed my chair obsession.
This chair will be moved into another room here soon,
as I have found another vintage beauty to
But that picture is for another day......
and the beat goes on.
It is snowing outside my window this morning
and I think it is worthy of a song
to brighten up my day.
Oh Dean, you are such a suave man.
Here's to a happy Tuesday,
even though I have to go out and scrape my windshield off.
Here's to Idaho's spring weather. ; )
Happy day to you!
