When I look at the way that furniture used to be made I have to wonder what’s happened to design over the years? Retro pieces of furniture are only really comparable to today’s high end designs that you pay an arm and a leg for, whereas a lot of the retro pieces were mass produced and available in general department stores, i.e. they were affordable. Like look at the thought that was put into this wooden armchair – the subtle angle of the legs and the curve of the seat where it meets the backrest are just beautiful. Even the metal springs, that were designed to be hidden (but I’ve exposed them), are good looking! This is one handsome armchair! The cushions have been reupholstered in a simple grey, and the wood has been given a light sand and a coat of varnish (although it could possibly do with another coat) – overall it’s a nice clean, beautifully designed piece, that would fit in with most decor schemes – and likely outlast (and outdo!) any modern furniture that you may already have!
