hi guysssss. there is a new addition to my living room.
meet my new eames chair! I'm so in love with it.
Now I know it has some issues...the base is all wrong and it has a habit of leaning back just a BIT too far but I still love it.
its the most beautiful shade of dark brown and the rosewood sides are in great condition. the leather is real and perfectly worked in.
This was a craigslist find and required a bit of back and forth, dealing with a slightly deranged seller and driving across the city in the rain in rush hour traffic.
relaxing in the new chair ...drinking saturday morning coffee and making a list of records we want :)
I've found a website online that sells the original base for the chair and I will purchase that soon.
ps we went record shopping at rotate this, a great shop on queen west if your looking for new records as well as classics. I bought a record from a band I had never heard of Yeasayer (listen to this!) on recommendation from P and loooooove it, as well as regina spektor live in concert. (Also a great album and has all her best songs on it) P bought the Gotye album.
