Snelling ~alicious ~ Should I Keep ?

So surprisingly I have kept my promise to you and here is the chair Kristen got yesterday....I heart him (the chair, and Kristen too I guess...I mean he did get this chair, ha) soooo much!
The chair was designed by Douglas B. Snelling and manufactured by Functional Products at their factory in St Peters, Sydney in the 1950's. The design is based on American and Scandinavian models which Douglas Snelling saw while working in the USA
I want to keep it !!! Should I ? Kristen says we have too many chairs no one sits on and I am too FAT to sit on it and I would break it for sure, and we don't need more chairs no one sits on...Aargh!!!
I do see his may seem harsh but the man does speak the truth !!
Perhaps I could see it as my "Diet chair" and when I eventually am slim, sexy and svelte (cough, splatter, laugh) I could take a picture of myself to celebrate in this chair ha....What do you think ?
It will need a good clean...very grubby, normally these chairs are in poor condition when you get them and need a lot of work. This one is in surprisingly good condition and once given a good clean will come up a treat I know. BUT I won't ever hear the end of it if it breaks...decisions, decisions.


  1. If you love it, don't sell it!

    I couldn't sell it. Good luck with the dilemma!!

  2. Dont sell it yet just wait and see I wouldnt if it was mine but I love chairs too.

  3. You work hard Katherine so if you love it, keep it for sure. If my husband told me I was too fat, I would make him diet along with me and live on salads. Ha! That would shut them up, I'm sure. xx

  4. It's a keeper! Not sure about Kristen after the fat comment though ... :)

  5. I say clean it, keep it for a few months and then see how you feel about it.

  6. Keep it! Clean it up & live with it for a few months, you can always sell later.

  7. Maybe keep it for a bit as diet inspiration?? Depends how much you paid for it too...anyway if I can lose weight anyone can!!

  8. If you love it - keep it. Even if it is in the corner. At least you can look at it everyday. xx

  9. Keep, keep, keep. Or alternatively sell directly to me. Stunning! LOVE the colour.

    I went looking for you when we finished brunch Sat and alas ... you were gone!!!! Hope to see you again for a catch up. Space is looking fab at Cottage garden. They make a killer coffee down there too.xo

  10. Thanks for the good writeup. It in reality was once a leisure account it.
    Look advanced to more delivered agreeable from you! However, how can
    we keep in touch?
