editor's obsession: veneer chair.
August 22, 2011
I’m a land lover, for sure, but with all this talk of packing it in for the summer, I’m feeling a bit nostalgic for the ocean, which I guess explains what happened when I spotted this amazing vintage find while crushing/clicking my way through 1stdibs: The one-of-a-kind, vintage tessellated mother-of-pearl armchair stopped me cold in my track(ball). I think any of life’s troubles might be a bit easier to brace when perched on this lovely lady of the sea. Located at the legendary vintage hotspot Dragonette Limited in Los Angeles, the chair’s sleek silhouette almost mimics the ocean’s waves through its curve-y frame, while the cascading mother-of-pearl veneer evokes a glamorous, Old Hollywood feel with a bit of a nautical twist. For me, this would be the perfect little vanity chair—definitely gets you in the mood to show-off your beautiful side!
