kitchen chairs

there was a loud bang this morning around 530. it was d sitting down in the kitchen and his chair collapsing. our cheap ikea chairs came to us via our neighbors and we knew they wouldn't last too long. so now we are on the hunt for something new.

this morning

for now we have the remaining ikea model - and my beloved eames molded plastic side-chair has moved from the bedroom to the kitchen.

so what should we hunt for to replace...

i was thinking perhaps of two more eames but with wooden dowel legs.

or a search for a series 7.

i had an opportunity to scoop up a couple of breuer cesca chairs. no arms. they would have been perfect. i passed. (oh for better foresight!) but they don't seem hard to find second hand - so this might be the ticket. perfect mix of chrome and natural materials.
I'd go for a natural finish.

backyard tour pt2

my home office


on days i work from home, once the kids head out to school, i head to our modern shed. (once they are home i tend to move back onto the dining room table.) the space is small. cool and comfortable. d has started a deck extension that will integrate it more into our space. this is the summer we dial things in!


CA modern came yesterday to take a few shots for an upcoming article - so the space was looking extra shiny.


thought i'd take a few snaps myself.
