Three Chairs

3 CHAIR
A wise man once said that you can tell a man by his chair.
The chair is . . . ok, I lied. No one ever said that. I just needed a proper intro.

Anyway, here we have three chairs. Three generations.
And in a way, there are similarities between these chairs and their owners.

Lolo’s Chair
Made of solid hardwood. Spartan. No comfort cushions. Just Functional.
Lolo was a self-made made who came from humble beginnings.
Farmer turned businessman. And although he attained a certain amount of business success, he was always a man of the earth. A farmer at heart.
In his later years, Lolo developed a foot infection that aggravated his already failing health.Notice the broken foot of the chair?

Dad’s Chair
The Eames Louge. Comfortable. Classy. Highly sought after.
In his prime, dad led quite a comfortable life. With his Vacherons and Montaguts, he knew how to enjoy the finer things.
He also had that easy-going character much sought after by friends and acquantances.

My Chair 
Cramming for that high school Algebra exam. Rushing that Philo term paper. Or just plain tinkering with my stereo. This chair saw it all.
It’s still in use as I type this now.

But age has caught up with it. There’s a split on the upper arm of the chair.
(Did I mention that I’m suffering from a frozen shoulder now?)
The woven rope that acts as the seat are frayed and unraveled with age.
(Did I mention that my favorite maong shorts are worn-out and riddled with holes because of age?)
I need to have this chair refurbished . . . and bring back its devilish charm and good looks. 🙂
