* Since writing this post we have discovered that the one and only Adrian Pearsall designed these beauties!!!
It’s probably time to do a little thinning out…but here we are – another week and another two chairs crowded. It’s ridiculous.
Mi esposo found himself, as he claims, at his kind of estate sale a couple weekends ago and uncovered a sleek looking chair for a price that cost less than a latte. Then he saw a buyer with its twin, offered him a quasi-reasonable sum and promptly got denied. This did not deter my little
stalker opportunist. He later followed the fella out and negotiated a slightly more reasonable sum and, WAM BAM THANK YOU, MAAM! The second chair was ours. So, he practically stole the first, groveled with quite a bit more for the second, and still made out like a bandit between the two.
The chairs give off every impression of Danish Modern, but are unmarked (save for an Oil Walnut marking on the Latex Foam warning label). They are in primo condition with the exception of the upholstery on one of the chairs (that latex done foamed!).
Now, I know several of you out there reupholster like nobody’s business, but our days seem to run at 18 rather than 24 this season, which is a somewhat masked excuse for saying we’re not nearly skilled enough to practice on a couple of beauts like these. So we got some help from the professionals at E & L A1 Upholstery, a little joint not too far from home.
They did an amazing job. I love the green fabric against the rich wood and how it brightened the pieces overall. Plus, like most furniture of this era and style, they are ergonomically comfortable and I could sit it one just about all day!
So – where to put them? While finding a good place for them is an okay “problem” to have, our new Conant Ball chairs may have just found themselves on the selling block.
