A sweet pair of 1950s club chairs

I just picked up this pair of chairs yesterday, and I'm super stoked about them. Why? Well...let's see. First, the scale is perfect. Not too big, not too small, and very comfortable. Second, nailhead trim is always a major bonus, and the little "cutouts" on the armrests are very swank as well. Third, they were CHEAP. Fourth, the duct tape just adds a certain "je ne sais quoi". ;-) No really, I'm imagining these with ebonized legs and reupholstered in silver gray velvet - or maybe moss green velvet. Or maybe mohair if I'm feeling really fancy. They'll be killer, just you wait.
