In the store: A tale of four chairs

We recently acquired another A-Frame chair by Edward Wormley for Dunbar...dark and serious, except for the sweep of the front legs. And we got in another Papa Bear chair by Hans Wegner for AP Stolen.

The last time we had these two chairs in the store, the A-Frame was a bit on the wild side, with genuine alligator upholstery, and the Papa Bear chair was an understated  gray wool.

This time the tables have completely turned, and the A-Frame is the quiet and unassuming one, while the Papa Bear...well, let's just say that Papa has found his feminine side. (We're offering it as-is or with a complete makeover.)

What do you think? Will the buyer find Papa pretty in pink and take him home as-is or insist on a complete restoration?


  1. The Papa Bear Chairs are so wonderful! Wish you and your family Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year! Send you all my Love, Ria

  2. So you even liked the one with pink? vote for the feminine Papa Bear! :)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family too, Ria. I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!

  3. I'd keep the papa bear chair in least for a little while. Ha! There are too many boys in my household, which is completely devoid of pink. I'd keep it as is purely as an act of defiance! xx

    1. That would definitely make a statement in your testosterone-filled Sow's Ear. :) I hope you and all those guys have a wonderful holiday season.
