The Chairs

My friend Angella stunned me to me core by gifting me with a pair of absolutely gorgeous mid-century chairs that I really wanted for Christmas.  We stumbled upon this resale shop a week before and I fell in love at first sight with plans on going back in a few weeks to purchase them for myself.

They are in amazingly pristine condition.  The only wear and tear is on the legs with a few minor knicks that I kind of love because it adds a touch of character.

As promised, here are the pics:

I would have to say that this rates as the best Christmas gift I have ever received. It was both completely unexpected and overwhelming to say the least.  Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough.

Very cool! I love anything that's old. I love to think of where it's been and the history of it!

Love the chairs, and how wonderful that you will have such a good memory to recall everytime you sit in them. What a great gift. Enjoy.

If ever in the Chicago area check out the Treasure Hunt in Schaumburg, IL. Really nice home furniture. I mean some of the nicest stuff you'll ever see in a resale store. Check out the website for an idea of some of the stuff in the showroom. The furniture is all from fancy schmancy estates of the north shore and western burbs.
