funky green chair

I really needed a side chair to put in my room since there is no where to sit to put shoes on or the like. My room is currently decorated with just black and white since I like a minimalist, clean look in my bedroom, but I had decided that I needed to add a pop of color. Green is my favorite color, so naturally I wanted to do green accents in my room. When searching for a chair I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted, and then I found this chair.

It immediately caught my eye, and had a funky apeal to it. It's nothing like the rest of my furniture... but that's why I like it. It looks like it's straight out of my grandma's house, and would totally go with the old orange shag carpet that used to be in my parents house. Totally not what I would expect for myself to want, which really made me want it more. After a few e-mails with links to the above picture of the chair to my design advisors (aka, steph, amanda and dan) I decided I had to have it. Oh and did I mention that it was only $160 from craigslist? It's a bit warn, which I expected, because it's probably really from the 70's, but still in pretty great condition. I'm currently in the process of painting the base/legs black to better match my room. I'm not sure what other green stuff I want to do to tie it all in, so let me know if you have ideas. :)


  1. I love, love, love it. I hope that this post is a secret plan to find out if I like the chair because you're secretly planning on giving it to me for my birthday. :) Right?!

    Great Craigslist find! * high five *

  2. SO cute!!! Good call. I can't wait until my next trip up north when I can see how far along your place has come!
