It was only a chance side trip I made to the Salvation Army. I wasn't going to buy anything, honest. But there was this one chair, and it had just come in that same day...
It's not all-out Danish Modern. It's not all swooping shapes with parabolic curves. And it sure isn't my dream chair. But, once again, its a Kroehler, and in awesome condition. A little wear on the seat cushion's ribbing is the only issue I could spot.
So, opportunity knocked, it wasn't necessarily what I was looking for, but still it whispered and it spoke to me. Maybe its all the boomerang angles that makes up its shape - but it definitely has a mid-century modern look that grows on you. The price tag was the best part - cheap cheap cheap!
Our living room aka conversation pit is coming together more quickly than expected. Work on the newly painted walls is almost all done too. The old blue loveset is gone, and the hideaway bed/sofa is on Craigslist waiting for a new home.
Looks like Pop has already lost the new seating to Junior before it even has time to gather dust. Well, only one thing to do... better start hunting for a second lounge.
