Whimsical but solid

A couple of weekends ago I bought six of these chairs from a local antique store. Doing a bit of research when I got home I found they are called the Kangaroo chair and were made by a company called The Melbourne Furniture Company in the early 1900s. Each chair is decorated with a small Australian scene including an emu and a kangaroo. I love that they have a slightly whimsical feel to them while still being solid. I bought the mirror from the same shop last year.
