I bought this chair last week at Hope Gospel Mission Thrift store for $20.00. It's a retro office chair I believe. Thought it would look nice in my living room that I'm trying to modernize.
Please pardon the fact that I haven't cleaned the chrome yet, was too anxious to take a picture :>) I like the profile and design of this chair. Reupholstering would really bump up the look of this chair, but I'll add it to the list with my Baker Chairs that I scored a while ago.
This is where the dilemma comes in. Today I found this groovy retro chair that I bought off of Craigslist for $50.00. The finish is a bit worn on the arms/legs, but that doesn't bother me for now. The naugahyde is in great shape. The owner told me his wife bought it in the 60's and after some time they replaced the upholstery with naugahyde.
I didn't even notice that the chair was missing one of the steel bars in the back until I got it home. (I'm going to contact the seller to see if she might have it.) It's another detail that I like about this chair.
I like the profile on this chair and feel that it looks nicer in the space. But I still like the other chair too. Where do I put it? Gak!
I put both of them in front to see if it would work with both, but I don't think it does. What do you think? I should also mention that I don't know the maker of either one of these chairs.
Whenever I take pictures it reminds me that I want to paint the walls a different color, do something to the inside of the bookshelves, get some different baskets... sigh. Why does one thing lead to another? And why do I prefer thrifting and estate sales to getting these jobs done?
I need therapy for my buying of pictures/prints/frames too, but this one is definitely a keeper and already on a wall.
I love this yak with a rose in his mouth! I bought this signed print at an estate sale today for $35.00. The glass looks like the old wavy glass which I don't care for in a modern print. I am going to buy a new frame for it anyway, so that will take care of the problem.
Anyone know this artist?
I hope this doesn't start an obsession with yaks.
What did you find this week?
