Vintage Love

Is it wrong to love a chair?  I was lucky enough to spot this beauty at the Rose Bowl a short time ago and was lucky enough to have done so the exact moment the dealer removed it from his truck.  I wasn't looking for a chair that day.  It just happened that I found it.  For me it was love at first sight.  I knew we were meant to be together.  Kismet and all that.  When I saw it, I knew I had to play it cool as I quickly rushed while trying to appear to mosey on up to his booth and keep my voice from sounding as excited as I was to have spotted it when asking about it.  The price he quoted was crazy low. Of course I still negotiated him down a smidge (this wasn't my first rodeo!) but I knew it was mine.

The chair shape looks sort of like an Arne Jacobsen Egg chair but I have no idea who it is by and frankly I don't care. The pattern on the original upholstery (which happens to be in mint condition!) is strikingly similar to the David Hicks Hexagon wallpaper I have coveted for so long...

 And painted on my bedroom wall that Carmageddon weekend.

Yep, definitely a match made in heaven, my new chair and me.  So happy it wasn't a vintage regret because I think I might be in therapy if I missed out on this one.  If only finding the right guy was as easy...
