I Have A Thing For Chairs

Yup, that's true.  I really have a thing for chairs.
I was probably 16 or 17 years old when I realized that I have a thing about chairs.  I like looking at them and I like the idea that even if it's just a chair, there is an art involved in it.  I'm not even sure if I conveyed my thought well.

I'm just amazed that a chair which is often ignored or or overlooked by anyone can actually be an art and that people actually "study" about it's structure and materials.  I don't think making chairs is as simple as making a vase or a table no matter how artsy it is.

Sure there are tables that are really designer-looking, something that did not come out of a department store.  But chairs, even in department sores, you'll see a lot of different shapes and textures.  I'm really amazed with it.

And if money were no object, I would really love to collect designer chairs, starting off with the Ghost Chair by Philippe Starck
Two of my favorite things: Acrylic and Clear

When I was younger, I told myself that once I have a house of my own, I want all my chairs to be mismatched.  NO particular theme, color, structure, texture.  Everything mismatched.  Even the dining chairs, I want them mismatched. I've already told ze husband about this and he's okay with it. He said that he likes the idea.

Just today, I started to grab photos online of chairs I love.  I may not be able to have all of them in my future home but I want to keep them accessible.  Maybe I can hire someone to design a similar chair?  A more affordable one?

This is the first chair that I grabbed off site
Eames RAR Rocker Chair, Charles & Ray Eames

I think this started getting popular last year. I'm not too sure. I've seen a lot of these.

Another trivia: I like going inside Dimensione. They have a lot of nice stuff there. From chairs, to couches, to cabinets, to other small home accessories.

Haay, I can only dream..
