I haven't posted about my vintage buys much lately - this doesn't mean that I've not been buying but I've been buy a lot less. One of the things I've been keeping an eye out for is nice homewares and the like so when I saw these two chairs, in nearly perfect condition, I knew I couldn't leave the store without them.
Even though they're possibly a little dearer than I'd have liked, I honestly don't think I could have forgiven myself if I'd gone away and left them. I love the use of contrasting vinyl and the wave design on the chair backs.
They're definitely more of a lemon yellow than some of these photos look and I'm hoping to find a pair of similar chairs but in grey, one day - I love grey and lemon yellow together. There was one grey chair in the same shop that had these but I'm really set on a pair so I shall keep on looking.
This is the table I bought them to go with (eventually) - it belonged to my paternal grandmother and it's the only item of this size I've inherited from anyone. There was a lot of furniture I loved in dad's step-dad's house but, long story short, I just didn't have the storage space for it. I do have photos - if I find the disc they're on, would anyone want to see a blog post on them?
Apologies for the iPhone photo but this is the only shot I have. My dad thinks his mum had the base custom made but he can't be 100% sure. I've not seen another table with a base like this but it doesn't mean there isn't another one out there, somewhere! Also, the table is really quite large but, luckily, the chairs are just the right height for it, anyway.
I may post more of my homewares as I collect them, if you'd all like to see them - maybe I can even just round up all of my vintage of the non-clothing variety for a post?
