A telephone chair.


I stumbled upon this chair online while trying to locate an awesome mod-inspired side table for our living room.  You know how it goes – you click from one thing to the next to the next and you end up finding something awesome that is completely unrelated to what you were originally looking for…

So, I found this chair and think that it is just so freaking great.  I had never seen a chair with a built-in table before, other than the chair/desk do-dads on every college campus in America, oh, and the old-fashioned chair attached to desk contraptions of my youth.  Neither of which are functional or inspire anything in me.  This chair, on the other hand, would be so cute in an entryway, or a small nook of a bedroom.  It could be a cozy reading chair for a children’s room, complete with a stack of books spot!  It is the perfect blue, the perfect amount of Jetsons, and the perfect chair that I’d love to have one day.

It was a pintrest find, that didn’t link to anything other than another blog, and after doing some hard-core google image searching I am sad to report that I was unable to find the origin of this beautiful piece.  I will, however, be on the lookout for one of these “telephone chairs” – because – well, just look at it!

  1. What an awesome chair. I tried something I learned the other day and found a bit more information about the vintage chair but not any purchase info. I learned that you can drag a photo into a Google image search and do a reverse search by image. I told myself I would find your chair but no such luck…

  2. “the perfect amount of Jetsons”!! Love that! That often happens to me on Pinterest–very dangerous, but look at the results! Gorgeous!

  3. My Aunt, a wild and crazy lady in her time, had this chair in the 60’s – covered in orange tweedy fabric. The old “dial” phone sat on the surved arm…and I often called my grandmother (a local call) or if I was REALLY lucky, I got to dial my cousin in California! I am pretty sure my aunt bought it in Paramus at some (at the time) pricey furniture store along with most of her other very trendy (at the time) furniture.. Having caught the show Mad Men a few times, I was SURE my aunt’s old furniture was there! Seriously, these pieces are amazing and I STRONGLY suggest you visit the Stormville Flea Market Memorial day weekend….you just might find it!

  4. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
    start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  5. I read a lot of interesting posts here. Probably you spend a lot of time writing,
    i know how to save you a lot of time, there is an online tool that creates unique,
    google friendly posts in seconds, just type in google – laranita free content
