Just a little over a year ago, my favorite blogger, Joanna Goddard of Cup of Jo, posted about a chair she purchased from Nightwood, a home decor business specializing in its own reconstructed furniture and textiles. I adored the pictures of her chair so much that I immediately emailed Nadia Yaron, one of Nightwood's founders, to find out about pricing.
Nadia rescues old and abandoned chairs and recovers them in a minimal, rustic approach. She uses vintage or organic and sustainable fabrics including hemp, linen, muslin and burlap. It's exactly what I've been looking for in a comfy, corner chair for our living room.
With Christmas right around the corner at that time, a chair wasn't in the cards for me then, so I waited patiently and saved for a little holiday gift to myself for 2009.
The wait made the final product (see above!) all the more worthwhile when the chair arrived a few weeks ago. I love it.
