Besides a few rakes and tools in the shed, it's the only remnant remaining from the previous residents that is any way useful. In fact, despite the chipped paint job, or perhaps because of it, I find the chair rather charming. I picture it in the corner of our bedroom, perhaps with a simple decorative pillow or a small knitted afghan folded over the back.
The chair is a little odd. I've never seen one like this before. The 'V' shape in the back is purely decorative. Where did this design come from? Have any of you seen a chair like this before?
