Paoli Mid Century Rocking Lounge Chair. Here and Gone!

I had this beauty in my possession for about 1.5 days before it sold. I picked it up on Friday in the pouring rain (a beautiful chair will get me out of the house even in a down pour), I listed it in my shop on Saturday and when I woke up Sunday morning it was sold!

This is a mid century era Paoli chair in incredible (like new) condition. It's oh-so-comfy.  And look at those gorgeous lines and curves!  The best part of this awesome chair is that it looks like a standard lounge but when you sit down.....ah, it's a rocking chair!   I thought for a second about swapping it for my orange rocker in my nursery but it would not have worked well with the rest of the decor.  But, I'm happy to say another new Mommy is getting this for her nursery. It's the perfect nursing rocker for the hip mid century momma.

Hi - I have an opportunity to buy this same chair, but with an ottoman. Do you sharing what you paid for it, then sold it for? I'm trying to find some "comps" for it.

Thanks!

This chair sold for $500 in my Etsy shop. If you found this chair at a mid century store here in Los Angeles it would have been even more. Good luck!

I just inherited this chair from my grandmother, and we just purchased a mid-century house so it just fits perfectly in my living room, and it's so comfortable! Mine has a small tear on one of the arms and is a mustard yellow color so I'm looking into reupholstering it with a color that will better match my decor. I was wondering what this chair was, so I was excited to see some talk about other people who have also found these.

Hi Joel. Thanks for the comment! It's a gorgeous chair and you're lucky to have inherited one from your family - even more special. ; )
