I haven't posted about some of my recent home purchases, because just as soon as I buy them they have to go in storage for the future House of Dreams. The tiny cottage we have temporary shelter in doesn't have room for anything and I've given up even wanting to decorate it. Now that we know we are going to be in this city indefinitely we have being looking for a permanent base. Oh dream house, where are you? We have been searching for so long!
Back to purchases, I found two vintage chrome chippendale chairs at the thrift store and hauled them home in my car. I remembered seeing them in a magazine, so I started looking and there is a similar if not the same chair in the office of Nate Berkus.
After further googling, I saw a discussion on Apartment Therapy about them. One reader commented that they could be Milo Baughman, and wouldn't that be awesome? But more likely non designer 1970's era chairs, and it looks like mine got recovered sometime in the 1980's. I know you love that fabric right?;) Obviously they won't stay that way, I'm thinking either a creamy leather or even a fluffy sheepskin fabric. Any other ideas?
