Overall good condition. Scattered minor scratches and scuffing to wooden elements. At some point in the past, this chair and ottoman were re-upholstered and shows moderate wear now. Wool upholstery on the chair with no rips, holes or staining but with under arm pilling and the piping to the right-facing arm has split open. Seat cushion with a pen-tip-sized hole on the seat, along with some fading and soiling. Some pet hair remains. Upholstery to the ottoman in fair condition, with heavier wear than the chair, presenting with several small holes and scattered areas of soiling. Foam on the ottoman is crunchy.
