Kitchen Update: Deciding On Chairs

IMG_3825 Last Saturday, Alex and I set out to find chairs to place around our new dining table.  After visiting a few Mid-Century shops we found 5 period appropriate contenders, all of which came with us overnight.  After studying the chairs, both from near and afar, we were able to narrow the options to 3.  One designed by Eric Buch, another by Kai Kristiansen and the third by Ole Wanscher's.  Taking in account their comfort, shape and wood grain all 3 could work in the space and the table but only ONE can stay.  I have my favorite.  Which one is yours? IMG_8986

Decisions, Decisions: Womb Chair Fabric Reveal (Part 2)

Our once bright yellow Saarinen Womb Chair is now a dusty rose!   It's the perfect color to compliment our brick walls and the greenish tint concrete floors that make our home so unique.  I'm delighted with its new look and impressed with the craftsmanship demonstrated in reupholstering this mid-century gem.  Take a look:

With a new coffee table and our favorite (now pink) chair back in the house, it's almost time for the living room reveal.  Stay tuned.

Many thanks to the folks at Klassik Living for undertaking the amazing transformation.
