miscellany #2

Hello there again. Just some more images of a few favourites we've previously featured. There's a pleasing mix of textures and materials here - and a couple of flying chairs thrown in for good measure as we're quite partial of that photograph with the chaps playing cards and smoking cigars!

We can't get enough of Cast and Crew - both on Etsy and Instagram. This dynamic duo offer raw and iconic mid-century modern designs and they know how to find stuff - good stuff - and take fabulous images of their finds to boot. We were browsing through their archives just the other day and came across this two seater which they'd salvaged from a dilapidated laundromat. The two fibreglass shells mounted in a tandem style, have managed to hang on to much of their original shine and with a colour scheme that is hard to beat - one turquoise and the other bright red-orange - they're ready, as Cast and Crew put it, to tango!

miscellany #1

Thursday, 10 May 2012

Hello everyone - it's been a while hasn't it? We decided to take an impromptu break - come on, talking solely and exclusively about chairs, chairs, chairs is not required on a daily basis, is it? But that was then, and this is now ........ and so we're back, in part, with a miscellany of images we've featured in the past that are particular favourites. There'll be more where this came from as it's good fun to put together and requires little effort on our part! Yeah, we're lazy - what of it? Oh, do you have a particular favourite?
