Mid Century Upholstered Chair

There haven't been many estate sales that have peaked my interest lately and this week wasn't any exception.  Until I happened to see an ad in the local newspaper (the last place I usually look) on Friday night for a sale that had started that morning which had some MCM furniture.  And it was right in my own little town!  I have no idea how I missed it on the estate sale list.  I was bummed, assuming everything had sold on day one.  But I drug myself out of bed Sat morning to go see if anything was left for half price day.  Even for that I was late - showing up about 10 minutes after the doors opened.  And all of the MCM stuff was still there!  Sweet!  There wasn't a lot - a coffee table, a couple of end tables, a great lamp, and this amazing chair.  I passed on the tables (they were still $75 each, I don't need them, and I couldn't make money off of them at that price.)  The lamp I snagged for $12.50 (forgot to photograph that.)  But the best find was the chair, purchased for $47.50.  

Now in reality I don't need another chair.  I don't - just ask my husband.  But I don't care - I'm keeping this one anyway because I love it!  The original fabric is awesome - very textural - and is in perfect condition.  And it is super comfy to boot.  I'd love to keep it in the spot I have it photographed but it's actually too big there when viewed in the room as a whole.  Too bad!  So for now it is relegated to the basement.  I'll need to do some hocus-pocus down there so that I don't have to get rid of any of my other favorite chairs.  I'm thinking some kid stuff will have to leave instead!
Linking up this week with Thrift Share Monday.


  1. Too bad it doesn't fit in the area you photographed it - it looks awesome with the curtains and the cork lamp. Really like the art piece on the wall behind it, too.

  2. great chair and i agree it is a great spot where you've photographed it ( i also love the lamp that's there.) it's so nice when you find things even when you suspect you won't!

  3. I agree with TSFP, that lamp looks amazing and your chair looks sooo comfy...I have to say also that I REALLY like your blog header!
