i was driving home yesterday, about to pull into my drive when i saw this beauty sitting outside at my neighbors house. my first thought – is that an eames?? – it wasn’t. but, it is an amazing chair and i had to have it. i simply asked my new neighbor if he would be interested in selling it. he looked at me like i was crazy and said (get this) “take it”. free??? oh absolutely i will take that.
I found out it is from homecrest. it is part of a patio furniture set that they sold in the 60s. i haven’t been able to find an exact name for the chair, so any help is appreciated.
it has been outside for a while and has some serious tears in the fabric, so it is going to definitely need to be re-upholstered before it comes in the house, but i am so excited to get to work on this little guy.
