i have a thing about chairs. i really like them. i’m starting to have more chairs than i have space for in my house. recently, i found a pair of original bertoia side chairs at open air modern in brooklyn that i treasure. designed in 1952 by harry bertoia and manufactured by knoll, these wire chairs are sculpted out of steel rods with open forms and “made of air.” this pair came with the original red covers (i also have a thing for red). even better, they were designed for indoor or outside use (think: california open living space).
i replaced my overstuffed, ugly green loveseat with these comfortable yet smallish chairs, and the room instantly felt lighter and more open. now, i just have to find a good replacement for the overstuffed, ugly green sofa that matched the loveseat—maybe a vintage piece that i can re-upholster. someday my home might even look like a real adult lives in it.
