Eames Lounge

Posted on Thu, 26 Apr 2007 by KiM

Charles Eames said his goal for the lounge chair was the “warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman’s mitt.” I can immediately associate one word with this chair – SIGH. I’ve never sat in one of these, real or imitation, and I probably shouldn’t. But I don’t think I could ever spend that much money on a chair. And I don’t think cat nails would go so well with the leather. But I lust after it regardless. After all, cats don’t even like leather right?

The Panton S chair obsession continues…

Sadly, I still have not made a purchase of (at least) one of these. So instead I post photos of this stunning chair which only serve to whet my appetite even further. Oh well.

A little surprise for Kim!

At the time of posting it is very early morning in Canada (1.00am) and Kim is fast asleep. I am wide awake on a Sunday afternoon (3.00pm) searching for images. And I found this. Kim loves Eero Saarinen’s Tulip chair. Here’s a groovy retro shot just for you Kim (and everyone else).

Yes, as I have mentionned before I love chairs. It’s about time for another chair post. Here are some random photos of chairs – I just love the creativity of the photo above.

Grant Featherston

Posted on Thu, 1 Mar 2007 by midcenturyjo

Grant Featherston (1922-1995) is another Australian design icon I would like to share with you. What Hans Wegner is to mid century devotees in America, Grant Featherston is to Australians. Devoted to promoting a philosophy of good design and opposing the stifling forces of conservatism with an alternative to the overstuffed post-war sofas Grant Featherston gained success in the 1950s with his clean organic designs. The now famous contour chair can still be found in homes as well as fashionable design stores and museum collections.
