I’ve talked a lot about my interior obsessions over the years, but there’s one obsession I don’t think I’ve mentioned before…The one that hammers home to me more than anything else. My strange affinity for chairs.
This may seem a little random, but this obsession is a deep one.
Case in point: 1) If it wasn’t completely strange to have a chair wall in an actual residence (i.e. not a retail showroom), I would do it. 2) Every time Jeff and I had a little money for a new piece of furniture, back when we started collecting classic pieces, I would always say I wanted a chair. And he would usually say we had enough chairs already. Which was true. But I just couldn’t help myself. As a result, we now have more chairs than I care to mention. And we haven’t necessarily figured out a way to make them all work in our place, but that’s just a minor detail, right?
So I feel compelled to ask…Am I alone in this? Am I destined to be a crazy, old chair lady (similar to a crazy cat lady, only more sad)?
I don’t know. But either way, I’m celebrating it today, with a little dance (the chair cha-cha to be exact) and a new Interior Obsessions post for awesome chairs today. Here are some of my favorites…
This blue and wood number is perfect for a kid’s room. Or my new desk chair. Either one, really. (via Design is Mine)
My #1 favorite chair of all. The Paper Bear Chair, designed by Hans J. Wegner. I have to brag just for a minute and say that we own one of these chairs. And it is absolutely the best. The only problem is, it kind of needs to be reupholstered at this point, unfortunately. Thanks to the handy work of Franz. No, that fancy chair is not your personal scratching post. Eeek.

And an Eames LCW. (via The Minimalist Home)
And a few more wishbone chairs for good luck. (via Robson Rak)
