Chair Love

So I have a slight infatuation with beautifully designed chairs.  The lines, material, fabrication…Most of my favourites were designed in the 1950s, however there are many contemporary chairs that I would happily bring into my home.  I’m slowly acquiring a few favourites, however I know that realistically I will never own every chair that I admire.  It might be a little cliche, but the chair at the top of my wish list is the Eames lounger.  I was in love even before I knew who Ray and Charles Eames were.  Ideally it will be a slightly-beat up, well-loved vintage version, but I wouldn’t turn away a brand new one if it suddenly appeared on my doorstep!

This Paulistano chair is hanging out in my living room

These lovely white Eames eiffel chairs live in my dining room

A couple of these Reed chairs by CB2 also live in my dining room (so does that gorgeous Shesham wood dining table!)
