Beauty Salon Chair Find at the Swap Meet

Vintage Delight: A Beauty Salon Chair Find

Here's a post from CasaSugar Community member tsharp25 from the Vintage Delight group: Every Summer, my family takes a trip out to Pismo Beach, and for the last couple years that has included getting up at 5 a.m. on Sunday morning to check out the San Luis Swap Meet. I've had some great luck in the vintage décor department, including a pair of brass owl bookends ($1), a milk glass lamp that my grandfather and I restored, and some retro, patterned suitcases. But this year takes the cake! I scored a 1960s style (not sure the actual year) salon chair with working hydraulics and a molded plastic seat for $20! The white vinyl cushion is in great condition and came with an orange and red flower-patterned fabric cover. These chairs were the closest match I could find to compare — not too shabby! I may decide to paint the orange base something more neutral, like black, just so it would fit in better with my living room's color scheme, but we'll see. Either way, it's a funky and unusual find that spices up my apartment!

Wow! That looks pretty cool! Putting that salon chair on your apartment as part of your furniture's makes it so unique. I super like it. I can say that you did have a very nice find this year. You did give it a very nice make over. I like the white cover. It looks very clean and elegant. -

That is awesome! I agree with bunny, if there's any way you can make it work without repainting in, you should. That orange base is beautiful.

This is so cool! I love it. I hope you can find a place to make the orange work, because I think it's a nice pop of color and it really adds to the vintage quality of the chair.
