In an apartment constructed of generic materials such as cinder blocks, it's completely necessary that you fill it with things you love. I've had this chair for almost a year, and I'm in love with it. I actually have two, but we are storing one for the time being. We bought them from a friend who had found them at the DI. We looked at the tag in the chair and it was made in 1963, in fact our couch is most likely from the same decade. It's very long, very green, and very velvet.
