Hubby and I spent a whirlwind day looking at chairs for his yet-to-be-built desk because I though a chair should be found first, so we know what height to build the desk. I was on a roll and made a whole bunch of other design decisions. Here are the bits & pieces:
We plan to copy this, painting the welded legs black and staining the wood surface a creamy white with some grain peaking through. You might remember this desk from this post – yup, we made a decision.

A reproduction of the Eames/Saarinen Organic Chair. A local store sells a version made in Montreal. It comes in a variety of colours, but I think we have settled on black with walnut legs. Hubby found it to be comfy. I love that it is versatile and can be used in different rooms in the future.
I love the look of a brightly coloured chair, but I can’t help but think black will withstand the wear and tear better . . . .

Sometimes I attack a canvas with paint and hope for the best. Other times I make a sketch or paint a miniature. Here is a mini trial run of the giant painting I have planned for over the desk.

I have a few vintage Lotte lamps and it is time for a crisp, new pair. Still handmade, these take up to two months after ordering to receive, so it might be awhile before I blog about these babies again. I am considering a taller style, in crisp white. Click here for the catalog.
