I seem to be in a furniture mode these days. I have been finding some rather nice furniture pieces at local estate sales and flea markets. Most of them I have left behind as the selling climate is weak this time of year. So, when I scanned across the warehouse at a local charity thrift, I nearly passed this special mystery item by.
It was the classic lines that originally caught my attention, as I have a soft spot for mission or arts & crafts style furniture and accessories.
However, it was it's function that captured my imagination.
It appears to be a simple side table.
The table top is hinged in the back like the lid of a truck thus creating the back of the chair or the top of the table.
When the lid opens it exposes the little pillow chair pad.
I have been unable to identify the original function of this piece but I find it interesting and unique.
But whatever it's purpose, it is a very nice, well crafted, solid piece of vintage furniture.
Any ideas what it could be? I would love to hear your ideas.
Also, starting the count-down to my summer buying trip... 14 days 'til departure!
More on that very soon.
