Monday Musings: Wishbone

Hola. Como estas? Did you all have a fine weekend? The weather has been frigid here and I have been sporting garb that would indicate that I live at a ski lodge. Truthfully. That is the beauty about living in the South, is when the temperature is even slightly cool, everyone breaks their winter jackets and snow boots out. I am in good company. 

Today I am musing about chairs that are definitely a blast from the past. The wishbone chair. Oooohhh and ahhhhh. The wishbone chair was made by a Danish designer back in the day, and let me tell you, Mr. Wegner was totally on to something. While its shape and craftsmanship is a little more modern than my normal style, it absolutely fits in any eclectic space. Pair them with a traditional table and lighting, and you instantly have a sophisticated and collected space. I am not sure why I did not think about this sooner. Slow on the uptake. 


So if you are like me, and are totally digging this oldie but goody, getcha some. A little ROYGBIV happening this morning. They come in a variety of colors and a variety of price ranges. I am thinking these would be perfect for a little kitchen nook. Who is with me?

  12. I have to say I'm really noticing this type of chair right now. Everybody gets an armchair, not just those at the head of the table. How cool do they look painted? Oh lordy, the lines... And in mint?! I just hit the floor.
