WITCO “Throne Chair”

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!

Hello all, Mel and I thought it was time to show you our TIKI room. As with anything in our home things are never finished, so let this just be a tour of its current state.

Though not everything in this room is tiki, it all seems to work.

We collect random TIKI items. Our goal is to make this room as diverse as possible.

This room has a lot of windows so I had to get creative with how to hang art. These Carlo watercolors look great in front of the chartreuse curtains.

Here are a couple of the pieces I painted.

 

As you may notice, the floors are concrete. It originally had vintage asbestos tiles. Unfortunately, numerous tiles were missing or damaged, so we decide to remove them all. We haven’t decided what we’re going to do with the floor yet.
