On my regular second hand sourcing trips I have found and lugged home many a fab chair. Always in need of some help but fab nonetheless. I have also missed out on some. Oh the gut wrenching sadness to see a sold sticker on a chair that clearly was meant for me! Late last night whilst peering through the window of my local op shop there it was, the chair find of all chair finds... a set of worn leather chesterfield armchairs with the dreaded sticker. It is a sad day my chair loving friends.
My most adventurous chair find was this old timber swivel style office chair. This thing weighs a tonne and after finding it on the side of the road in Bondi I lugged it five blocks home to my apartment in Tamarama. Let me tell you there was pain... but oh how I love this chair! Ten years on and 60hrs of stitching later it sits at my desk proud as punch reupholstered in black leather with a custom black and white typography tapestry upholstered to it's back.
