What do you think of this chair? I love it! When I was young my grandparents had a pair of these and I remember my granddad used to sit on it and read the paper in the morning sun. Now these Parker style chairs are worth a lot of money, and look great when recovered in modern fabric.
On the weekend we had a wedding to go to in Wollongong. And what should we see where we parked the car? A pair of these style chairs out on the kerb for garbage day! They needed recovering and probably a bit of work, but really what are the chances of finding a matching pair.
This conversation follows:
Me: “wow Dan look at those chairs.. We should take them”
Dan: “I don’t know.. where would we put them.. we have no space”
Me: “but we’re driving Kate’s truck. There’s plenty of space in the back. It was obviously meant to be. We can put them in the garage until we have space for them..”
Dan: ” Someone might see us”
Me: “they wouldn’t put it there if they wanted it. Please…”.
Dan: “I don’t think so”
And so with that conversation is over, as can’t exactly grab them myself in heels. Now I am kicking myself. This revamped pair featured in the July issue of Home Beautiful at Southwood Home is $2750 for the pair.
