David and I are the proud new parents of an Eames era chair! This little baby came to us via an alley. Poor little lost soul needed a mamma and a daddy. We, being the saints that we are, adopted this poor pittiful dumpster dive, through it in the back of the truck, (our little truck bought for the management of our properties...totally hoosier!), drove it home where it took up residence in our foyer.
When my husband spotted it I was so excited...finally we would be parents. My friend Anna and her husband took up ebaying...selling junk for alot of money. Ya know one man's junk is another mans treasure. Which is true because on another dumpster dive many years ago I found turn of the century high-backs that I reupholstered and now love. Valuable in an antique store but free in an alley. It even had the original horse-hair and down filling...anyhoo back to Anna.
I was so excited because she sells what she refers to as post-modern furniture which I refer to as my grandma's choice of furniture. So we called her and told her about our new chair and she said that she would list it for us. We pushed the kitties off of their new bed, through it back in the truck, and drove with our prize to Aunt Anna's house. There we vacuumed it, showcased it, and took pictures.
You can meet David and Alex's new baby at this ebay page! We will be having a shower hosted by the couch...it's proud God-mother. So, please, folks get your bids in to the alley chair errr I mean the Eames Era Desk Chair that is oh so hip!
