The Grandfather Chair

Yesterday, at the Rose Bowl flea market, I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of chairs for our family room; because the two chairs we have now are on their last legs. Unfortunately, I did not find them. The chairs that I am looking for must be, 1. vintage and 2. comfortable; with arms you can rest on while reading, a back that feels like a hug, and a wide bottom cushion that you can semi-sink into. Yes, I am searching for the perfect pair of "grandfather" chairs. They don't have to match; but they must compliment each other, as if they are best friends.

  4. best of luck finding the right chair, its a hard task i know

  5. i love the idea of a chair that gives you a hug!!

  6. We're looking for a second chair for our new living room-it's so tough to find chairs that are friends!

  7. Old chairs are just so beautiful, and full of character. I always hate searching for something specific and never finding it, I always stumble upon things when I least expect it though. So good luck in your hunt! Lovely blog :)

  8. Keep imagining you'll find them and one day you will. I really can't wait to hunt with you!

  9. I'm so jealous that you get to go to the flea market to look! You'll find what you're looking for, for sure. Just like I'll find the perfect furniture for our perfect house that we've yet to find but are trying hard to.
