My chair

When I showed my sewing setup yesterday two people commented on my chair. Gerrie said a lime green chair would set the room off nicely. Jackie predicted a new red chair in my future. Both good ideas. Ray looked at the whole thing in the studio and asked if I needed a new chair. He said my chair looked uncomfortable. Actually, this is THE BEST CHAIR IN THE WORLD. Really.


It was in my Dad's office and probably dates from the early '50s. It has the original orange Naugahyde upholstery, still in perfect condition. It is heavy and the wheels roll smoothly and you can adjust the height of the seat and the back support to whatever feels right for you. It is an excellent chair! I'm sure a snazzy, colorful new chair would look divine in my studio, but I can't imagine that my bum would feel as happy as it does on my old orange chair.

  1. They just don't make chairs like they used to!! We had an Eames orange office chair from my FIL's office. It was orange. Mark still has it.

  3. I love that chair--maybe not beautiful, but... This is a case where the tukhus MUST make the final decision.

  4. You could have the best of both worlds, you know -- keep that wonderful chair and make some covers for the seat and back so you can change the look as the mood strikes... but I agree, a comfy chair is KEY.

  5. History, comfort, utility are all important in your chair, and I am glad it is working for you. I do like Gerrie's idea of lime green, though. Perhaps elsewhere?

  6. A comfortable chair is the most important thing. And they are so hard to find. I like your chair.

    Can't wait to see your new creations from your new studio
