I saw some divine ones the last time we went to Byron Bay. We stayed at the beautiful www.atlanticbyronbay.com.au, and in their stunning 'beach vintage renovation', they had 'the chairs'.
I have since been on the hunt.
low to the ground,...curved, 'pretzel' shaped arms,...vintage 'tropical' fabric. I could picture them in my mind. The perfect gin & tonic on-the-deck-chair! I needed them.
however, at $1,300 per chair, they were slightly out of my budget.
last week I found them! For an amazing $250! They looked a little tired,.. and the fabric was very dated.
but the shape was perfect,...and the chairs were in very good vintage condition. I found some great tropical canvas,...
and set about making new cushions,..using the existing ones as templates.
I think the finished product is beautiful! $2,600 of chairs for less than $300.
vintage cane perfection.
