A love letter to the abandoned seating that lives among us.

I can’t wait to rake up a whole bunch of these and jump into a big squishy leaf themed sofa pile. Isn’t autumn the best?! #alleychairs

Nothing better than getting outside for a few days and just being one with nature. I don’t care what those guys say, backyard camping is just as tough as doing it in the woods. I’m like that Bear guy on tv. When the zombie apocalypse comes they’ll be glad they have me as a friend!

"There’s one at every party. They get a few vodka & diet Red Bulls into them and next thing you know they’re dancing on the table swinging their shirt above their head.
Man I’m glad my wild days are behind me, before Instagram and Facebook and all that. It would be soooo embarassing to have that posted all over the internet. 
C’mon down from there Tina - you’ll thank me in the morning.”

"I don’t know - he seems to love it."
"I guess. Here Jerry, hold this box with the free stuff would ya?"

"That’s what I love about New York man…you can just be annonymous and blend in with the crowd. Nobody stands out cause everyone is so busy. I can just walk or hours and practically disappear…."

Chair #1: “Ok…you got that end? K…just go slow and let me know if it’s too heavy..ready?”

Chair #2: “Yeah - I’m good…just go and I’ll follow…”

#1: “Ok - try turning it a little to the right..”

#2: “Your right or my right?”

#1: “We’re both facing the same way!”

#2: “God you don’t have to shout, I’m just trying to help!”

#1: “I’m not shouting I’m just trying to get this done before it starts raining. Don’t be so sensitive Sean.”

#2: “Me?!? What about the way you’ve been pouting all day about the fact that we couldn’t fit your foosball table into the living room?!”

#1: “THAT WAS A GIFT AND YOU KNOW IT WAS IMPORTANT TO ME!”

#2: “You know what…let’s just take a break. You’re tired and we’re not getting anywhere. Come here you…give me a hug.”


Moving is always so stressful.

It’s actually pretty unlikely that this is technically an ‘Alley Chair’. This one just needed some fresh air so it popped outside with a slim menthol in it’s favorite housecoat in full makeup to have a quick chat with Linda next door about her new kitchen cabinets and yell at Tommy Rosenthal who ALWAYS throws the morning newspaper in the azalea bushes every morning no matter what you say.
He’s a good kid though, just, you know, careless. Boys will be boys.

Remember when George Costanza said “I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable”? Well I get it now and god help me if this were a cape I wore waltz around in it until it disintegrated off of my shoulders.

The majesty….the velour…look at those lines. It feels like this was dragged from the bowels of the Titanic and unceremoniously plopped on the side of the road.
This grand old dame deserved better.Somebody get crazy James Cameron and his submarine down here now and put her back where she belongs ASAP!
