The new romantic

Wednesday, 20 October 2010

Last night, as we cleaned out the hearth and readied the fireplace for its first officially lighting of autumn (or is it winter today ........ gosh, we are so cold) we had a "decorative veneer" moment;  that's right, we came over all romantic! 

So today, we'd like to be in this room, even though its probably a bit draughty!  OK, so we'd have to have a bit of a clear out.  But this room, in that chair, under that chandelier, next to that fire ...... mmmh!

Spot the classic?  Designed in 1951 by Hans Wegner, the Bear Chair was originally manufactured by AP Stolen Denmark.  Often called "the most comfortable chair ever made!" and simply known as 'model 19', this classic has become an icon of mid-century Danish design.  Its Danish name (Bamsestol) translates to 'Bear Chair' and in recent years has become affectionately known as the 'Papa Bear Chair'.
