My Find:

In my dream living room set up, I’d have a sofa loveseat like this one and in front of it would be a Thonet inspired bentwood rattan stool for propping up feet and getting comfortable. So far so good as I’ve found the stool!

Unfortunately the seller wasn’t willing to part with just the stool and was firm about selling it with the rocker. The rocker is in stunning condition minus scuffs to the wood. But, the caning back and seat is perfect. So while I may not have space for it in my home. I’m looking to rehome the rocker. (The price for the pair was only slightly more than I’d pay for the cheapest one of these stools on eBay or Etsy 😉 )

But hey, I got my stool and that’s all that really matters in my mind. Thankfully the first thing hubby said was that I’d have no problem selling the rocker because it’s very cool. Love that man!
