Spotted: Chinese Chippendale chairs sitting outside my favourite antique shop.
Four chairs at $60 apiece (prices always negotiable), so I probably could have had the set for $200. I was THIS CLOSE to snapping them up to bring them home for a fresh coat of paint and new seat cushions à la Jonathan Addler–
The Jonathan Addler chairs retail for $550 each. Versus $60 each for my vintage find. I’m kinda regretting leaving them there on the sidewalk….
