On the first of this month I moved into a new apartment, which I promptly began decorating with a menswear vibe (grey flannel-colored walls, custom houndstooth curtains, Churchill dot throw pillow… ), but I wish I’d known about this Brooks chair before I started buying furniture so I could have begged them to sell me one.
I spied it last evening on the fourth floor at 346 Madison, where I was checking out the spring sportcoats. There was a pair of them that looked great together. The material felt like doeskin, and the chair was button-tufted with brass Golden Fleece blazer buttons. The rep-striped pillow completed the blazer-and-tie look.
Perhaps Brooks should use its newly vacant space next door for a furniture store. — CC
