We've dealt with a lot of vintage, retro items but I cannot recall EVER seeing anything quite so retro looking as this chair and matching ottoman. The slight conical shape makes the furniture look like something out of the Jetsons, a very atomic style. Covered in white / black pinstripe vinyl which is in incredibly good condition for it's age.The cushioning is still robust and both items are very sturdy. Decorated with a raised rose flower motif (this is a raised thin plastic or vinyl, not a sticker) which, remarkably, is also intact. The legs are original and sturdy. It looks like there may have once been metal feet at the base of the legs, but I'm not certain as there are now none. As you can see, these are wonderfully decorative and would look fab in a kitchen, bedroom or funky lounge. The dark vinyl on the ottoman has suffered more than on the chair; the top has some discolouration as do the sides. The seams have a couple of tiny small splits, hardly noticeable. I have tried to capture faults in the photos. Collection can be made from CA9 3NJ. I will deliver within 30 miles for CoD. Please follow us, bookmark us and check back often. New, interesting items added weekly. Larger items or high value items will go by courier. If you need an item within a specific timeframe, drop us a line to make sure we can do that prior to ordering. If an item you ordered is taking longer than you thought it would to reach you, always feel comfortable to send us a message to make sure the item is on it's way.
In the extremely unlikely event that there is any kind of problem, do let us know so we can rectify it. We don't want anyone to leave us feeling disappointed - we've been trading online since 2002 and treat our customers as we, ourselves, would like to be treated: with respect, honesty and decency. As certain things are subjective, we tend to prefer a "say what we see" approach to the description and, if we are unsure of anything, we will make that clear.If you spot an error in our listings, please do let us know. Information helps us get better and we'd never take offence by someone more knowledgeable getting in touch. If we state an item to be from an era (ie "Victorian"), this will be a researched decision and we will be certain that we are correct. If we aren't entirely certain, we would use quantifiers such as "Victorian-like".
If we state a specific year (ie "1851"), that will be a certain decision. Likewise with materials used (ie "Silver Plate" if stamped vs "Like Silver Plate or White Metal" if not stamped). It is a term I coined for my own eclectic tastes. Be it Victorian antiques, 70s kitsch, 50s Danish or 20s Deco, I love it all and - somehow - manage to make it work together. The one thing all my items had in common was that they were quirky - and I felt that was the thing that united them so they didn't clash on display.It dawned on me that this type of collecting - something that isn't unique to me - deserved it's own monicker. So I combined "quirky memorabilia" to come up with "Quirkabilia".
