Westnofa Siesta Lounge Chairs - Revisited

Here are two vintage Norwegian Mid-Century Modern Westnofa ~
Ingmar Relling Siesta Lounge Chairs 
 circa 1960's or 1970's.

Found - September 2011 - Salvation Army - San Antonio

 Bought - Immediately!

Here they are ~ in situ...

Google Westnofa - You'll be amazed - I know I was a GOOD way!

This is a short reprise of a post I made last fall.  At that time I attempted to start a blog with the name,  Texas Treasure House.  I just couldn't get it together and I think I published one post before I deleted the email name which was attached to it and Texas Treasure House bit the dust! 

The post I managed was about my Westnofa Siesta Lounge chairs which you see above in the TV room during it's winter incarnation.  The gold velvet curtain covers 3 windows and keeps the North wind chill out of the room.  The curtain matches the gold velvet pillow with a rhinestone pin covering the button that my children gave me for Christmas a few years ago. 

I bought the velvet curtain from Clutter in Warrenton probably 10 years ago and used a large crochet hook to attach the green drapery ties through the backing at the top of the drape. The ties hang over old glass doorknobs that Noel installed on a platform he built over the windows. EVERYTHING you see in the room is either thrifted or used and probably both!

I'm going to be telling you more about our house and land in subsequent posts!  Stay turned!  8-)


  1. Linda,
    Thanks! We love them too, besides being so amazingly goodlooking...they are sooo comfortable! If I ever find footstools at reasonable prices...I will be set!
    PS - I love the way you have Scrabble tile titles on the pictures on your blog home page ...way cute!


Please leave me a comment... I'd love to hear from you!

PPS - If you are using Google Translate to read my blog, I can probably use it to read your comment, so comment away!
