LEATHER CLUB CHAIR and OTTOMAN

Today, I'll highlight the best chair in the house... My leather club chair.
I had been on the search for a vintage leather club chair for a while and never really found what I was looking for, until I discovered it on craigslist...

It's actually a Club Chair and Ottoman. This one was made by Pottery Barn, but it's a very early Pottery barn that was made by Mitchell Gold.

Looks inviting doesn't it? It was really sun faded when I got it. I used almost 1/4 tub of Pecards Antique Leather cream. I used the same stuff on my Californian Leather Jacket... Amazing stuff...

Notice how different it is from today's Pottery barn. One solid piece of leather for the arms, not multi pieces like today's models which is why I didn't like the new Pottery Barn chairs because they're being cheap and using scraps of leather...

For the Vintage Gear Guy, this is THE chair you need... Find a Club chair and take it easy...
