27 - The Season of Love - Eames and the Unknown

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I can't stop gushing about chairs. It turns out that in this house we are chair obsessed to the point of having chairs in storage in the attic - its a crazy thing we are trying to break free from but here I find myself lusting after.... more chairs!

Not just any chairs to be specific though.

I love the mood that it exudes, that I could throw a sheepskin rug on it and read a book nice and cosy in the reading nook I'm about to create in the studio, the warmth of the special edition runners, the colours, just everything. I am crazy in lust for this chair and have been trying to think of stuff to sell to raise the cash for it, especially as its only available until March. Sigh.

I am so tempted to charity shop or sell our existing dining chairs and get these instead or use them for the long desk we are planning for the studio. I love that they have a history and they have seen so much life. I love the blonde colour of the wood. I love the functionality and utilitarianism of them. Do I love them more than the Eames chair? I don't know. The name doesn't really make that much of a difference to me. After all, what's in a name? They do different things and so I guess they aren't really comparable. I'm in love lust with both equally.
