I think its a steal too. I'd buy it.

boops said...

do you plan to re-upholster it? from what i can see in the picture, it looks like it may need some extra stuffing/insert to fill out the cushions ... make it look less droopy/saggy. otherwise, i think it's cool.

Kara said...

I think YES! I bet it's super comfy.

Claire Watkins, ASID allied said...

YES! YES! YES! or at least go look a it in person-the 'droopiness' of the leather adds character. Please give us an update.

uh-mazing shape. LOVE.

Jenny said...

Drooping? No way. It's PERFECT!!

GO BUY IT NOW before I drive down all the way down to atlanta and take it myself!!! Love it

GiGi said...

I'm with Jenny.
I could use a road trip-we could meet for drinks after I steal your chair.

Love it!!! Negotiate Down (you know...just because)

Gorgeous! Don't let that puppy go!

Petunia Face said...

If that chair were a man it would be George Clooney: all fresh twist on a classic worn better with age. Curl up in that bad boy and buy it!

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

See if they'll take $250, then jump on it.

bluehydrangea said...

You better!! That chair is awesome!!

sketch42 said...

I love it! BUY IT! Did you ever buy that coffee table with the ram heads?

Duel Living said...

Black and white leather Bergere chair? DOPE! Buy it...NOW!

gatherings home said...

Ummmmm....what are you waiting for? Duh.

That is all.

Anita Davis said...

YES! it's sexy and handsome....
(are those the words you needed to hear?!)

Love it!! Good purchase.

jennifer said...

awesome chair, but i hate the white. am i crazy?

jean said...

"On ne dispute pas le gout." Or something like that. Translation: I think it's ugly as hell, but if you like it, go for it. Especially if you need somewhere uncomfortable to sit.

Simone From Elizabeth City said...

A no brainer at that price. Snap it up or a big posse will descend on Atlanta to find it. I just saw a photo spread from some chic magazine or blog that featured chairs like this in a room with an all black-and-white palette. Gorg. The chair looks super comfy, too.

Emily said...

I love it! Buy buy buy!!!

monique said...

do it! its so pretty!

Claire Watkins, ASID allied said...

Just came back bay to see if you bought it. Boomerang is right around the corner and I think I could fit that thing in my car...

AppleTree said...

It would be perfect in my living room!

court. said...

f that. offer 200. what's the 75$ for??? oh, we want 3hundo but will settle for 75???? awesome but you can go lower. can you tell i'm the offspring of immigrants?

mb said...

Buy it. Hurry.

nkp said...

The price is definitely right, although it can't hurt to offer less. But I wouldn't fall in love until meeting it in person. Just to make sure the down doesn't need to be replaced. Also, the white just isn't working for me. I think a medium/dark walnut stain would really set off the gorgeous black leather.

Add a rich suzani pillow with fushia accents or perhaps one of those furry Mongolian lamb pillows in camel or grey...yummy!

my favorite and my best said...

just an update. i have not made an offer yet, b/c i can't..yet. but i will try next monday if one of you hasn't snatched it up. which i wouldn't be mad about. so snatch away if you live in the A T L.

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

A Bergere in black and white?? Hell, yes!

Susan said...

dude, there was almost exactly like that last week on the Seattle Craigslist. But the frame was natural wood. But the bastard sold it!!!

Abbie said...

It's fab. Get it.

Beach Vintage said...

You are not crazy, can you imagine it with a bright pillow...I can.

Anna said...

OH YEAH...thats a beauty!! I say whip it up and put it in your pocket right now....but not the pocket where you store your boogers ; ) x

Kimberly Knoess said...

I love it, but try to get it for less!

Kindle Marie said...

Oh hell no...you better not pay $275 for that thing! It is worth $100 at best.. goose down my azz..

I find chairs like that all day er'day. You can make that. If you need some help check me out, I will hook you up.

Anne @ The City Sage said...

i'm hesitant. $275 does seem a lot---though it IS leather. be sure to let us know if you get it!

Tamstyles said...

i like it

Anonymous said...

No. you are going to have to reupholster. why bring extra work into the house?

Michelle said...

hehehe, I almost got that same chair, I guess you are my competition for great craigslist scores in Atlanta!
