Midweek Modness: Sidewalk Chair

sidewalk chair

This gilt chair is definitely mid-century, but I wouldn’t call it modern. It’s more of a hodgepodge of several historical eras interpreted through a 20th century eye. I so badly wanted to bring it home with me and fix it up so it could become my office throne, but the fabric was too far gone to save — at least with my humble darning skills. I suppose that in this day and age when you can have a photo of your face printed on a jumpsuit, you could also scan in the old fabric and have it recreated. But I don’t have the resources to save all of the chairs in the neighbourhood. I try, but I just can’t.
