vintage leather chairs


i dont know what it is about these amazing chairs... their history? comfort? patina? color? whatever it is ... they are probably one of my most favorite things in the world. i have never met an old ragged leather chair that i didn't fall in love with...

There is something so wonderful about old leather, isn't there? It's been wonderful getting to know you this year, Pam, even if we didn't get to meet in person. I wish you a very happy 2010 and continued success with your beautiful shop!

I couldn't agree more. Somewhat like an old, well-loved, gorgeous leather shoe, or bag. It's their history, should they choose to share or keep all who sat there a mystery. Wishing you a magnificent 2010. Much prosperity and pleasure for this new year.

All my best to you Pam x

Oh how delightful! Thank you for coming to my blog! How did you find me? The simplicity of this marvelous chair is speaking to me at this time...just having written about simplicity! I have a huge leather chair in my living room and it is the most comfortable chair in the house. The color of yours is marvelous as well! Have a great week! Anita
