These chairs sit in one of my favorite rooms at “WW”. The comfort that these chairs provide causes one not to want to get up and that’s fine with me, I love being in this room.

The design here is absolutely brilliant.

A stunning example of comfort and kitsch. The resident felines also love these chairs.

What a set.

This little leather creature sits on this chair at all times. I forget the name but these leather monsters were made to promote a certain brand of leather recliners or maybe even this chair?

    The green chair is also known as the Star Trek Chair as Spock sat in one of these in one of the episodes. It’s very collectible and very comfortable but will also tip over if you lean too much to either side.

    I hope you’re noticing the carved linoleum floor these chairs sit on.

    The pink chair and ottoman are about the most comfortable things in the house. I found them on eBay from someone who only lived a few blocks from me. They are completely overstuffed and you sink right into them.

    The little leather creature is the mascot for Naughyde. Naugas were very collectible when they first came out and repros are made to this day. This one’s an original.

    Did you get a photo of the green chair the Nauga is sitting on? There’s a great story that goes along with it if so.

    Thank you Denny for the beautiful post…
    Love being able to see another great shot of that amazing floor. The chairs are so beautiful. Love seeing your Nauga, I haven’t seen one in such a long time.

    Glad you like! I did do a post that features sections of the floor in great detail. It will pop up here soon so stay tuned!

    I also believe I snapped the green chair that the nauga is sitting on but I have let some pieces escape the clutches of my Canon Elph over the sheer excitement of being let loose in “Willis Wonderland”…..
