Yup – I happened to be in the right place at the right time again. I found this bench on the street as I walked back from a meeting in Cole Valley. It doesn’t quite fit in with my current furniture, but it’s very pretty and nicely built, with inlaid veneer and mother of pearl across the back. It needs to be upholstered – a project beyond my current abilities – so I’ll just have to wait until I can afford to have the piece re-glued and reupholstered.
Until then, I may just print up some fabric for the seat. After I finish sewing cushions for this other street find, of course. And, Universe – I’m still waiting for you to send me a lampshade for this lamp.
