BE SEATED!



I got myself a set of old movie theatre chairs.

As I've only ever lived in flats and apartments before (or, a townhouse when at home with my parents) I never really was able to buy interesting furniture unless absolutely neede; not being able to have them lying around waiting for the right moment and right place. Or sure, I've stuffed a vintage make up table in the hallway of my old studio apartement and squeezed in a chair here and a lamp there, but with a few square meters there has always been practical limitations. And some sense from my behalf too. But the countryhouse can take in a lot, and already has from former generations! (I mean who needs three big cupboards in one room? Btw that will change, soon.)

So, I saw these old movie theatre seats for sale in an online antique store and had to get them just because, well - how often are you able to buy old movie seats? Not sure what their exact duty and placement will be; if not for when we get a tv they  might find their way to the porch we're about to re-build. As they are not only fun but practical; they take up small space with the seats folded up.

If interested there are still some seats for sale at Lundagård.

WOW! Speachless..! En ole koskaan itse törmännyt tuollaisiin, en ole edes ajatellut että niitä voisi olla myytävänä :D Upeat!!

Those seats are to die for. What kind of fabric is that? It almost looks like corduroy or velvet.

That's really cool. One of our local antique stores have their own little movie theatre and they show old movies for free once a week.

Great seats! Mine are waiting in the cellar, no place to put them in my actual tiny flat, what a pity! Got mine from our hometown cinema, they sold the original 60s seats when it got renovated.
Now, what's in the movies tonight, then? ;o)

Roxy : yes it's corduroy, quite "broad" such, broad stripes.

These are beautiful! There's a whole row of antique shops between my flat and work, and one of them had a row of those classic theatre seats in the red velvet in the window for ages. Wanted them so badly!
