Among my many fascinations.....I love chairs.
Eames fiberglass chairs, Saarinen tulip chairs, Danish Modern.....
In 2002 I went to Denver Colorado for a conference on Dual Diagnosis (Developmental Delays and Mental Illness). My boss Russ and myself stumbled upon a museum that was having a "History of Chairs" exhibit. It was the beginning of my fascination. I thought "Really. A display dedicated to chairs in from ten and now?". Oh, yes. It was divine.
Sometimes I get on E-bay and just look at Mid-Century Modern Chairs, Danish Modern Chairs, Teak Chairs, etc. My friend Mahdavi calls it 'furniture porn'. She says this cuz she has a home filled with beautiful and original Danish and Mid-Century Modern furniture (her mother owned a store specializing in this type of furniture). I was invited into her lovely home and discovered this treasure in the middle of rural Idaho! I walked in and became speechless, only able to make unintelligible sighs and "oooohhhhs".
Here's what I have been looking at lately.....
The last one is my most favorite. Wouldn't it look fab in my living room? ; )
This calls for a song.
I'll be seeing you. Off to dream of boiled wool and teak and funky shapes.
Here's to sweet dreams for you!
