Just waiting on delivery of this bad boy next Thursday.. My old chair finally had a catastrophic failure, and can no longer open the foot rest. I got it secondhand as a gift about five years ago, and it has served me well. I really wanted to get it with the brass tacks on the arm trim, but I would have had to wait till February for it to ship. I’d be a fool to wait that long to put my feet up with a pipe, right? It got me thinking, for me, a good, comfy chair to smoke in is a great enhancement to the experience. Has a very patriarchal, grandfatherly sort of a feel to it for me. My Dad had a lazy boy, and so did his. Sitting in it as a boy always got me a “get up” from either of them when they got home. Granted, I’ve smoked a pipe sitting on a homer bucket in a tree stand, and it was a great smoking experience lol. I’m sure somebody else here has to share my passion for the “holy grail”of smoking chairs. What’s yours?
