Ya Know...We're Gonna Have To Start Calling These Yugoslavian Modern Chairs. Status: Estate Sale Garage Rescue.
Much like the tables I featured earlier (BTW, Illuminate is picking those up today), this fine example of Yugoslavian craftsmanship was covered....COVERED...in dust, dirt and cobwebs. Again, I was too embarrassed to even photograph it in that state. It was gross just having it in the back of Frank. But, of course, not so gross I would leave it behind!
Them's some great lines, right? Sure, it was put together in Yugoslavia but it's style is pure
Scandinavian! Too bad it didn't come with those great cushions. Maybe that's why it was
relegated to the garage and was covered in dust and cobwebs. The sale was great. I picked
up a few other niceties while there and didn't have to get up at the butt crack of dawn to be
#2 (and the Girlfriend #3!) in line.
See, no cusions. Suck. I mean...it's OK and all. It's not the end of the world. It might have
been nice to have the cushions but that's why it didn't cost much...and why it won't take much
to move it on! I don't think I'll ever get around to making a set of cushions for it so that means
the next owner can get all creative with the upholstery and go for a bold pattern or keep it
subtle like these nice brown cushions.
And the missing cushions ain't all the issues this fella's sporting. It had some finish issues hiding
under the dust but nothing that can't be cleaned up pretty easily. Maybe I'll go get some
Howard's Walnut Restore-a-finish and see whazup with that! Oh, and a little wood glue too.
