I got a pair of chairs a couple of weeks ago on ebay from a guy who owns a storage facility. One of his customers stopped paying his storage fees, and could not be contacted (for more than a year), leaving a room full of vintage furniture - what a wally! The guy selling them thought they were junk, so I got them for a song! The moral of the story - there are still bargains to be had on ebay!
I love the engraved back of the chair, but the thing I was really looking for was the pop out seat, so I could do this ...
Aside from being pretty, the Circa Chair provided some much needed respite during the five days of the show last week! I also discovered how much people like seeing ideas for what to do with a small amount of fabric (less than a fat quarter) - it was a great talking point.
You can get the same fabric from my shop, along with a few other delights from the show! Enjoy!
