vintage aqua naugahyde chair

I wish I could just refer to it as "my new chair," but I can't. Because it is SO vintage, SO aqua, and SO naugahyde. And it's making me SO happy. My sister spotted it on Craigslist last week, and it was at an antique/vintage/junk shop about 25 minutes away. I sent the link to juuust the right friend and before I knew it she was tossing me in her minivan and whisking us away to the Middle of Nowhere, where they keep all the good chairs. So a sweet deal on a funky vintage chair accidentally turned into a mini room makeover, but I couldn't help it! I want to do right by the chair. I thought I'd have to ditch my other obnoxiously colored orange vintage chair (yikes), but when I found these pillows on Etsy, I realized they were the answer to all my redecorating prayers. So it all stays. I've already made some small changes since I took this photo this morning, but you can see the whole room, with notes, on Flickr.

Here's to Craig, and his groovy list.

That is one rockin' chair!! I had a vintage black one a while back - it got used until I wore through the vinyl!! It's neat it prompted a whole room makeover!

What a great find. I was in a consignment shop this week and saw these crazy couches that were upholstered in a blue furry fabric that reminded me of Cookie Monster. There were some really great pieces like your chair, too, that had an awesome vintage feel. Fun!

Aqua and orange in a neutral room like yours is great. Don't get rid of the orange chair unless you've run out of room. Love that shade of aqua!

Oh my god where did that come from?! I LOVE IT. That's my favorite color. I want to like, paint my house Vintage Aqua Naugahyde. Or at least my nails or my kitchen or something.
