We recently cleaned out my Grandmother's house when she moved into a nursing home. This chair has graced her formal living room for as long as I can remember; yet she still kept it in pristine condition. Every time I look in the corner of my bedroom and see this chair I think of the many Christmas celebrations our family spent scattered in her living room amongst piles of wrapping paper and the loud chaos of a joyous and big tight-knit family.
