Furniture: Corner Chair

I like interior design and dream of a well designed beautiful home. (Reality is so much harsher though…) I imagine myself striding around my fabulous home with white furniture and big french windows. In reality I’m sitting in a nondescript brown leather sofa with steamed windows. Gotta love English houses.

I can just imagine it sitting in a corner of my apartment with white fabric over the seat and new ans shiny looking. I’m just not sure if I want to spend £30 on it. Does anyone here know about antique furniture? Which era would this be? (Or is it just an old, battered replica?) Should I take it?
