Yup! Been Diggin' In The Garage Again. Pulled Out A Pair Of Fantastic Arkana - Maurice Burke Campaign Chairs This Time For Your Consideration. Got 'Em Tagged And Dragged To The Shag. Status: Available.
We've had this pair of Campaign / Sling chairs for ages. They were probably purchases the first year the Girlfriend and I discovered estate sales. We found them at a condo sale and the Girlfriend just had to have 'em!
Lucky for us she had the good sense to encourage me to pick them up. This was WAY before I knew
anything about vintage modern. Heck, I didn't ID these until maybe a few years ago. We only used
(and by used I mean displayed...we never even really sat in 'em!) them for about a year before we
moved from Tower Grove East up here to Florissant. They got disassembled and stored in the garage
and I only brought one out briefly to photograph it for the blog a while back.
So since I've been dealing with the perfect storm of a huge space to fill in Creve Coeur and a rather
lean craigslist the last couple of months (this will likely pass as spring arrives), I've been dipping into
the Garage stores to keep up. This, I think, will be a good thing. I'm finally getting around to some
of the projects that I've been too easily avoiding and recouping the outlay of some of that investment.
These Arkana / Maurice Burke Campaign Chairs didn't take up much space out there but they'll
definitely serve someone else much better than they have been us!
