Design Picks {Mid-Century Mod Chair}

mid-century-mod-chair-design-picks

I’ve had my eye out for a nice accent chair for my guest room for a while now. Something with a mid-century modern feel to it. Something like this Mid-Century Ash Dining Chair from Matthew Izzo would be perfect. Problem is, I have a ridiculously small budget. Like, nada. So, now what do I do? I want to find a high-quality piece that will last but need it to be much, MUCH less.

It turns out, luck was on my side when I went to the Raleigh Flea Market this week-end. I came across a similar looking chair for only $30. Now, that price I can handle. The tag on the bottom of the chair reads: Boling Chair Company, Siler City N.C. and the wood appears to be walnut. It’s very sturdy and in really good shape. Just a few scratches on the back support posts and that’s it. I still prefer the design of the new ash chair better but a savings of $445 for a similar quality chair is enticing enough to encourage a compromise.

So, what would you chose if it were your project? Would you fork out the $475 for the new ash chair or spend a modest $30 for the look-alike walnut chair like I did?

By the way, if anyone has information about The Boling Chair Company, I would love to hear more about their history. Please share!
