Random CL side chair that I can't stop looking at

melle_sactoAugust 19, 2014

I'm loving this chair, even though it's a singleton. I could totally use it at my house if it's sturdy (seems sturdy just based on the design).

Here is a link that might be useful: side chair

I even like the fabric on the seat! I'm still waiting for a response from the seller...

Thanks! I keep checking my email, there was no other way to contact.

I would put this chair next to my front door for people who want to sit and take off/put on their shoes. On the narrow wallspace next to the door I have a vintage wall clock pocket-watch style w/a chain, brass, and I think this chair would be another interesting vintage item for the space (which currently is stacked with empty boxes because I'm TRYING to de-clutter).

If you love it, write again and offer more.

I regret a singleton I didn't buy for $40. So beautiful but I "didn't have a place for it."

I contacted the seller again, but still no response. Something weird must be going on and I'm not sure I want to investigate further. They re-listed their post recently. So... :-( IMHO it isn't meant to be. Such a bummer!

One thing that seems to hold true about CL, though, it that there is always something else to come along eventually!

Maybe that is the case here.

Omigosh, with craigslist, you never know if you'll get a response or not. I answered an ad for mirrors, calling the seller at the number she gave. I got a recording saying the number was "not in service". I e-mailed seller, saying I thought perhaps she had posted a wrong number. She called me back to say thanks, that she'd listed her number with one numeral off!

Good luck to you! That's a great chair.

The update is I haven't called on that chair...mainly because in the interim I tried one of our dining chairs in the space (our dining chairs are a similar style/size) and I wasn't sure it was working for me.

Our entry area is, to me at least, really bizarre. The front door and garage door are side by side, and there is a small coat closet perpendicular to the front door.

In past posts about my entry, I was advised to paint the garage door and closet door to match the walls (including the trim around them) which I think it a GREAT idea but I haven't found time to do it due to other projects.

Anyway, it's a space that my children play and I also use it as a sewing area. It feels like a waste of space, mainly it's a passage to other things. The wall that has my kids latest art projects, we added that when we remodeled the kitchen because it was totally open and I didn't like it. However, after living with that wall, not sure I love it, either. I'd like to make that space into a large closet, which it used to be (before we bought the house). The little display space, where we have the asian-themed sentimental junk, is remnant of the closet. I'd like that area to face the front door, but I'm not sure that we could just turn it 90 degrees ;-) If only things were that simple!

But all these changes cost time and money, and...I guess to make a long story short...I'm just not sure that chair will solve the problems -- and given that it's the same dimensions as our dining chairs it won't tuck into the sewing table, either.

You guys must think I'm a nut case!

If you want a seat between the doors, I agree something smaller than a dining chair. How about a vanity stool, perhaps an oval one? It's small enough to fit, designed to be sat on for just a moment, and the rounded edges make for "flow" around the seat. And it will echo the curves of that very cool pocket watch!

Had never considered something rounded, especially not a vanity stool...what a neat idea!

I found an old project out in the garage! I was going to paint it to match the wall, and upholster with a fun fabric. I completely forgot about this little bench.

It's handmade (translates to "rough-looking"), not too pretty right now, but I think it could work. My dad said I could have it because it fits under the sewing machine. My dad didn't make it, a friend of his did, but still the price is right ;-)

The top is hinged and there is a small storage space underneath.

*sigh* the chair is a much nicer style! Oh well, in our house function always takes precedent over form.
