I’m desperate in my search for the perfect living room chair(s). I bracket my “s” because it’s hard to say with a 10′ ladder, my swinging chariot of a chandelier, and my misfit furniture whether I need one or two. This will most definitely need to be worked out before I actually make the purchase…but for now just identifying the chair and making a love connection will do. As it is Valentine’s Day, and most everything looks better through rose colored glasses I have collected some of the prettiest pink chairs I could find. That is, in my opinion of course.
Don’t those just make your heart aflutter with excitement? Perhaps it’s the kid in me, but a swivel chair is both playful and practical. If there’s a dip in conversation or said conversation is decidedly boring, you can take yourself for a spin. It makes turning to the television or toward that engaging chap to your right, and dare I dream, another just to your left, a sinch. It’s rhythmic and relaxing and fabulously fashionable. I’m very fond of the Jonathan Adler Bacharach Swivel pictured above. And it goes without saying that a Bergere is welcome in any home of mine.
I am certain that Kelly Wearstler has many secret admirers – but I am not one of them. I have made my obsession with her very public. That is why I am certain you aren’t surprised to learn that her Souffle Chair, pictured to the left is my current crush. What I am not crushing on is the price tag – at $7300. I will have to wait for the rich and famous to get bored with the chair and sell it to me at a fraction of the price. I’ll love it forever…and the name…it’s simply sublime.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
