This is one of the coolest pieces of furniture I have seen in a while.
Armchair, Gerald Summers, 1934
The humble, functional, and sometimes statement making chair gets its own show, “Chairvolution” from now until Nov. 28 at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. I would definitely attend this exhibit if I were in the area.
I never thought of a chair as being iconic and a piece of art in and of itself. But as we continue to build up our home and invest in interesting pieces, I realize a chair can really set the mood of a room and make it pop. Here are some really cool designs:
Cross check armchair, Frank Gehry, 1992
Womb Chair, Aero Saarinen (totally on our wish list though I don’t know if it’s in the show!)
If you go to the show, tell us how it is! Do you have any chairs on your wish list?
