The Sexiest of Chairs

Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.

I have a photographer coming very soon to shoot my home for the website.  Guys, I am pretty freakin' excited|nervous about it.  I have been stalking Ebay and 1st Dibs since November in hopes of finding the perfect pair of Milo Baughman swivel chairs to complete our living room.  I have a mad crush on everything designed by this mid century genius.  These gems are my ultimate dream. They meet all the requirements - swivel, rock, gold platform and channel backed goodness.

I have wavered between new and vintage since the beginning.  Buying new would be much easier choose, pay and wait.  But something kept telling me the character of vintage just cannot be replicated.  These babies recently arrived recently and I am loving everything about them.  I was taken with the over-the-top sculptural lines as well as the fact they were a bit larger than the typical petite vintage swivel.  I will eventually have them reupholstered but the existing 1980's fabric is pretty cool.  I will leave them as-is for the photo shoot.  There are no original tags so I have no idea about the designer which is a real bummer. I will have to satisfy my Milo desires with another piece.  Perhaps brass framed dining room chairs? ;)

Have a beautiful day,
