Vintage Tulip Chairs

March 8, 2011

All things happen for a reason, right?  I truly do believe this and I now know there was a good reason to be on kijiji.ca last night.  I do not spend a lot of time searching kijiji, but I should.  A few months ago I found a beautiful vintage Singer sewing machine for $60 and last night I found 3 vintage Tulip chairs from the 50’s.

No, they are not original Saarinen chairs but they are old and very cool.  The sweet lady I purchased them from has had them since she was a kid; her Mother bought them brand new.

They do need some work; new seat covers and a fresh coat of paint.  But for $150 I really could not go wrong.

Maybe I should choose a new blue fabric for the seat???  hmmm…we’ll see about that.
