As usual, Mel and I were cruising Craigslist and came across this fantastic WITCO throne chair! The seller was unaware that it was WITCO and just listed it as a throne chair. We shot over to Elk Grove, CA and with some haggling, we snagged it for $400 because she just wanted it gone! Once we loaded the chair in our truck we shot over to our upholsterer Custom Upholstery.
We are sooo excited to add this to our other pieces of WITCO.
It is is rough shape, but when the upholstery is done and I oil the hell out of it, it will look like new.
The armrests are so wide. This will make them great as a work surface for my laptop. I think we have a new blog chair!
There are a lot of cool tikis carved into this chair.
These two upper tiki heads are detachable.
The heads just mount on these studs.
We can’t wait to get this restored.
Finding the original tag when we flipped the chair over was an extra bonus!
I am so jealous right now, my head is about to explode.
