I heart Craigslist!
Yesterday during a Sci-Fi program my sweetie was very into (and I not so much), I found this pair of Biedermeier chaise lounges while surfing Craigslist. They were listed as being in downtown Austin near the capitol. The listing wasn't recent so LondonHIM was SURE they already sold. Ever the optimist, I endeavored to prove "Nothing ventured, nothing gained!" is a worthwhile motto. And he invited me to prove him wrong.
Sooo ... we just got back from a road trip to Austin.
The pictures don't do them justice. (We'll take our own pictures soon.) They have amazing marquetry details. The professor we purchased them from found them at an estate sale in Tarrytown. I'm so glad he did!
P.S. Below is the detail picture I promised.
