one old arm chair

JD's dad made this arm chair from scratch some 30 years ago. It sat in his work shop window and then for many years in his shed. When we moved out we added it to our mix mosh collection of furniture.
It's incredibly comfy and often after a hectic day I've fallen asleep in it.
Maybe one day we'll have it upholstered. But whilst still undecided on what fabric to use, I do love it as it is, all worn out and beaten up..


  1. It's a wonderful shape, I love it's slightly worn look, and the fact that it's hardmade is so special. I love your rug too, is it from ikea? I'd love a new rug from there but can't quite fit them easily on the plane coming back to Hobart.

  2. What a great chair! Great in looks, great in comfort and special in story :)
