Another Situation, but this one has Milos :)

This is my desk area. Can't believe I'm sharing the mess that it is. It is constantly covered in everything from paint and fabric samples, to kids birthday invitations and glue guns. This entire area makes my head spin.....i have to get this in order.  BUT......I have a much more fun project in mind......and it includes the orange and brass cantilevered Milo Baughman arm chairs that came with the matching table you see covered in my mess.

Oh help me
I use a copy of Elle Decor as a mouse pad. 
Here are the favorite things i've purchased on Craigslist to date....and the best part that all three items were together under $100

Here are the same chairs (in better shape and recovered) listed on Cain Modern for the bargain price of $2100 a chair

Unusual Brass Armchairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin

Did a little happy dance when i saw this on the bottom of my chairs

So, I need fabric for these and it has to be UNREAL but can't be forcing me to eat Ramen Noodles and PB&J's for the next few months..........Faux fur?  Cowhide?  Mohair?  oh my. 


  1. OMG, cowhide all the way! Save up, do it, and don't look back. :) Congrats on your fab find!


    1. Thanks Dayka! I kind of agree with you on that one! It has to be WOW.....even a zebra cowhide would be interesting.

  2. oh my goodness. Do you want to know the craziest thing?! I went to an estate sale in Devonshire and saw (what I'm pretty sure was) these chairs. AND, I very nearly called YOU to say "come get these!" They looked just like you. How funny!


  3. the corner of Southwestern and Preston Park? That was a good estate sale. Love the chairs you got. I vote for white leather or cowhide.

  4. By the way, you need a massive fabric covered cork board above or next to your desk. It will make you life happy.
