Thrifty Saturday – Retro Office Chair

If there’s one thing I like, it’s the idea of incorporating vintage accent pieces into rooms. Which is why I LOVE the office below. The retro green upholstered shell chair is just perfect in the space!


In my opinion, Liz and Tom hit the jackpot today when they found a similar-looking office chair from a yard sale for only $2!

The chair they found doesn’t have arms or an upholstered back, but the sweet button tufts make up for it!

It sort of reminds me of the Herman Miller upholstered Eames shell chair below, available from The North Shop

Although the color is similar to this Stephens side chair by Williams Stephens (upholstered with the Inca textile by Sheila Hicks).

I think the chair will be a great addition to our office. Now time to figure out whether I should convince Liz and Tom to just clean the chair up, or try their hands at reupholstery! Let me know if you have any suggestions!
