alexandria. sat. here.
The Alexandria chair from Urbana is "inspired" by the classic architecture of Greek ionic columns. If the funky factor is too high for you, don't worry...you can get it in a single fabric to unify the look. This is a big, comfortable chair. So big that Urbana also offers a smaller "condo" version that will fit in homes where space is at a premium. You can get this in all of the fabrics that the manufacturer offers. It's also available in leather.
Urbana makes a matching vanity and bench.
P.S. I found this post in the FF archives from June 5, 2006. For some reason I never put it up. So here it is for your enjoyment, a few years late.
