Remember how I was looking for some hot new chairs for the living room? I had SO many great suggestions from everybody and I scoured many a shop looking for them. I got close to ordering some really expensive ones, then I chickened out and every now and them I would do a bit of an online peruse, as you do, just window shopping, for a pair of hot new chairs.
Today I found myself at an old favourite haunt of mine in Bowral, Dirty Janes Antique Market, as I was looking for some 1970′s tableware (don’t ask) when I stumbled across an old favourite stall and there! THERE THEY WERE! Like a shining beam from the heavens above…two HOT DANISH MID CENTURY CHAIRS. The price was way too good to miss (less for both than one of the chairs I was going to get from Freedom), and seeing as I had a girlfriend with me, well those bad boys were in the back of the Hyundai wagon quicker than you could say “Quick! Get those hot chairs in the back of the Hyundai!”
And so home they came. Smelling like fabulous old wood does. And there they sit…perfect because they are lower than a wingback…and hot because they are, well, hot. And while the fabric may not be perfect, that can easily be fixed with a quick change whenever I fancy, and you know my thoughts on aqua, I’m a fan. And look at the workmanship? These are proper bits of furniture. Built to last.
What’s the last thing you bought for your place?
