Amongst my chair fetishes are many design classics. But sometimes the simplicity and honesty of an old chair is the best kind of chair. No provenance as such, no recognised designer, but a long, and possibly accomplished history. Possibly not. Definitely a full life. Several coats of paint, mostly worn off. A replaced arm. Many chips. Evidence of bora. Heavy, solid and dependable.
I'm sure many would have consigned this chair to the tip long ago. Rescued instead, it sits in semi-retirement in our family room.
Many years of life in the old chap yet.
