The good thing about having a blog is that I have to rack my brain to find interesting things to write about and share with blogland. The bad thing about having a blog is that some of my topics stem from poking fun at myself, further spreading the silly things I’m in love with that so-called “normal” people probably won’t relate to. You probably won’t understand my rants on this one, internet, but maybe that’ll make it more interesting for you. Thus, this post.
I have a slight obsession with chairs. I attribute it to my history of interior design courses in college, where we learned about every single influential piece of furniture that has every crossed the world’s path, including about 50 million chair designs. I get so excited about seeing a classic piece designed by Mies or Breuer out in public that I have to drag the hubs over to check the bottom to see if it’s an original or check out the incredible craftsmanship. Dorky, I know. It’s my secret vise that 30 internet readers now know. So, when I saw this print for purchase online, I about flipped a lid.
Oh, all of the beautiful chairs, in one glorious print. It’s a homage to my obsession! I think it’s crucial that this print make an appearance in my abode, right? Sure, Scott doesn’t share my love of seating, but I could pop it in a cheap Ikea frame, place it in a discreet spot in the hallway, and he’ll be none the wiser. Great, right? It’ll create some chair love on the side of the house that is opposite my very own womb chair.
That’s right internet, I have my very own classic designer chair in my living room. Feast your eyes on that puppy. Now, you may be wondering how a lowly designer could afford a $3,000 chair – and you should be. The only way I got my grubby little hands on this guy is because I won it in a newlywed-ish game at a work event – score! If I had my choice, I would get a barcelona chair or an Eames lounge chair, but hey, beggers can’t be choosers. Isn’t she lovely, though? My womb chair rocks my socks and I think it needs a chair print to accompany it in the designer-chair-lacking house. Thoughts?
