Some of you may know that I love unique chairs, and my latest addition is no exception. During the summer I spotted a great school house chair at a roadside garage sale. I squealed and got my husband to pull over immediately and made the deal! $4 for my new treasure. My husband probably thought differently but as usual he indulged my whims! It was a little rusty and well worn but I loved it. We took it home and at first I thought I could use it in the office at our desk but....it wasn't really up to the challenge so I decided to put it to use in a corner of my bedroom with a sheepskin throw on it to add some softness.
Believe it or not there are plenty of other schoolhouse chair lovers out there too, check it out!
I am a huge fan of industrial design and one thing I love is vintage lighting. Beaten up metal, age and patina. Show me more, I say! Over the summer I came a cross a perfect example, an iron gooseneck desk lamp for only $5 at a salvage yard down East. I have since seen similar lamps priced up to the hundreds. I'm still researching to find out the exact history behind it but in the mean time I love having it sit in a prime spot on my desk. It adds a little character nestled between two new IKEA bookshelves. Old meets new always works in my book! Combining styles and eras creates layers and interest.
