Ok, I am going to admit one of my greatest vices….drumroll please! I have a “thing” for chairs. In fact, cannot seem to pass up a cool chair of any sort which drives my husband to distraction and is starting to clutter my barely 1900 sq foot house a bit. Maybe this is not so bad as far as vices go but I have been forbidden from ebay, auctions ( live or otherwise), flea markets, rummage sales and even of late..my fave little antique store, Blue Moon.
In fact, while shopping with a client and one of our other designers, they both had to pry me away from a darling chair that needed a little of my TLC….forcibly. I think it really is an addiction because I felt a certain withdrawal as we drove away! Seriously!
Some of my recent purchases are Phillipe Stark Victoria ghost chairs ( love them!), two Hans Wegner knock offs, and two mismatched mid century modern danish pieces. I stripped one down to original fabric seat and it is sunny yellow! I favor mid century modern but also like whimsical chairs, and delicate old chairs.
I think old chairs tell a story and have a history that emanates from them and adds personality and charm to any space! New chairs are just waiting for history to be created!
What does this have to do with kitchen or bath design? Eh, not much and yet it is all about the design!!!!
I cannot for the life of me remember where I found this pix but it is really cool….if anyone knows…please tell me! I want them! I do I do!!
