if you know me at all, you know i love to collect chairs — too many in fact! and, the funky ones are my favorites. i went down an internet rabbit hole trying to figure out what kind of chair this beauty was until i discovered it’s gorgeous and i think somewhat rare (and sadly, pricey!). but i love it because it’s a little bit nerdy-looking, and it rolls! my favorite things come with wheels. anyway, i digress, i’ve been on the hunt to perhaps share some ideas for different kinds dining chairs with you and these are some of the most interesting-looking chairs i came across on my hunt.  and oh! we have some very cool vintage dining chairs in the shop right now and a new cargo arriving from france for super marché in the next couple of weeks.

  1. OMGosh, Victoria. I have a habit of collecting funky vintage chairs, too! Those and vintage lamps! New ones just aren’t the same :-)

  2. About what you call the “ cees braakman combex wire chair”, I love that picture so I mailed it to Pastoe (who know all about Cees Braakman) and what they told me is that while that chair does very much look like his designs it is not designed by him. I don’t think it is a rip off but more a creative tribute. Kind regards, have a lovely day.

  3. PS I share your love for chairs. The Hoffman chair is my favourite dining chair. Sadly with armrests it doesn’t fit under the table.
