Sold! June 1, 2010 I had a great weekend! It started out with an email last week from a reader (Hi Ariane!) wondering if I was selling this chair I bought a few months back. I had no plans to sell it, but I also know that I’ve been wanting a wingback for my bedroom (where this chair was originally destined), (via design sponge) so after some contemplating, I named a price and she agreed. I normally buy stuff I love, so it’s always really hard to get rid of things, but this time it was so worth it. I called her Saturday morning to schedule a meet up time, and (to make a long story short) found out that she got engaged the previous night—how exciting!!! She and her fiance David are the sweetest couple, and it was cool to meet a reader who’s not an actual blogger. I think I talked their ears off (sorry, guys), but I have to admit that I feel like I’m now a part of their story (in no one’s mind but my own), since working out the logistics of the chair swap became such a big part of their “morning after”. Congratulations again, Ariane & David–hope you guys enjoy your “new” chair and a long and happy life together! 🙂 Share this: Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Related 16 Comments on Sold! paula June 1, 2010 at 9:04 am (9 years ago) how fun.

I would hate to part with such a great chair! At least it’s going to a great home and will be part of new family! Reply Emily A. Clark June 1, 2010 at 10:26 am (9 years ago) What a fun story! I’ve also been contemplating selling some of my furniture finds. My garage would certainly thank me 🙂 Reply autumn June 1, 2010 at 10:35 am (9 years ago) what a lucky couple to snag that gorgeous chair from you! i am sure you will find a worthy replacement, though.hope you had a fantastic weekend!
