Around The House

TeakChairs_Lucy1TeakChairs1I have to share one of Kelly’s greatest find to date; these gorgeous Danish teak chairs. We were in desperate need of some different dining chairs, so we were keeping our eye out for a nice, reasonably priced set. We had been using the Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs for a couple years, and 2 chairs just weren’t enough. I loved them, but they were damaged and needed a lot of work. So one day while thrifting (yes, thrifting) Kelly found this set for $80, and brought them home. I almost died when he brought me out to the van and opened the doors. I absolutely love them! I posted the photo above on Instagram, and a wonderful user informed me that they were designed by Arne Vodder! Bonus! The craftsmanship is so beautiful, I can understand why these chairs (and all vintage Danish furniture) have become so desirable. We’ve had them for about a month, and they’re the best dining chairs we’ve had. (This is our 4th set). The others were either too heavy or too rickety. I believe we’ll have these for many years. The search is over for the perfect dining chairs, and we can cross one thing off our list.

Whoa, it has been way too long since my last post! Once again, time just passes way too quickly. Since my last post, Kelly and I both had birthdays. We both had small gatherings at home and they were a lot of fun. Cadell is already done with his first grading period at school, and he received a fantastic report card yesterday. Kelly and I have both been busy treasure hunting and listing new items. I’ll be stocking up for the holidays soon, so my next post will be an update of my new shop items! For now, here are some scenes from around the house.
