Soooo....Tired of Tables Yet? How 'Bout a Cool Black Vinyl Lounge Chair? Status: Hmmm....Available, I guess.
Well this cleaned up nice. I got this over the weekend from a C-list ad.
I think it goes nicely with the Thayer Coggin Sofa even though it's not leather.
Doesn't it have a kind of "Jens Risom" quality to it? The curve of the seat. The way
the arms don't attach to the legs tops but to the cross support. Cool, huh? It's the
details that make the chair.
I really really wish it was leather. If it was, I'd so be keeping it! I'll put it on the ad
and see if there is a wanting home out there for it. If not, I'll end up pairing it up
next to the black leather sofa. Or maybe I'll try my hand at re-upholstering it since
the piping around the bottom is chewed up.
I wonder what happened to the piping. The damage is so localized. If it was from a
dog you'd think it would be all over the chair. Weird. I do love the way the support
for the curved seat is sculpted to match. That's one of those nice details.
There is some other minor wear issues here and there consummate with the age
of the chair, which I'm guessing is from the 1960s. Actually, I'm somewhat
surprised by how good of condition this is in!
