Yesterday I Was A Little Late In Getting My Post Up...Sorry, I Was Wiped Out When I Got Home From Work. Right After Getting That Post Up I Jumped In The Car And Drove Through Some Mad Rain Storms To Pick Up These Beauties! Status: Available.
I only had time to photograph one of these chair but I picked up Three. They've been recently re-upholstered but they've also been painted. Brown. Too bad that, but if they don't move quick I might bring 'em home, sand 'em down and shoot them with Satin Black.
When I spotted the set on craigslist the first thing that came to mind was Finn Juhl. They definitely
aren't by said designer but they're certainly of the style. They came in a set of Three...sarcasm one
of my favorite numbers /sarcasm. I'm compensating by dropping a pair of them off in my booth at
The Antique Mall Of Creve Coeur and keeping one here at home, for now. I might drop the Third off
at The Green Shag and see how that goes.
I showed Jeff (Swift, our upholstery genius) a pic and he thought they looked like a Thonet product
but I couldn't confirm that either. I'm kinda loving the sculpted arcs of the legs and the chairs are
very comfy. The former owner re-upholstered them herself. Did a pretty good job of it too. Better
I'm sure than I'd be able to do! I got 'em priced for a quick flip, for now...but if they hang around for
any time at all I'll pull 'em out and get to work on making them just a little more attractive. Then the
price'll have to go up, obviously!
