It's all been hush hush, but this afternoon we finally brought home these babies. I say hush hush, because the men of our respective households can get a little uptight about more furniture being dragged back to the cave. You've really got to pick your moment to break it to them.
Our focus here is on the chairs of course. How good are they? I was beside myself.
Here they are in silhouette.
...and from another angle.......now let's take a close up look.
Some people call them Eiffel Tower chairs, sometimes they're called spun fibreglass. They are the perfect chair; beautiful, light weight, durable, comfortable, weather proof. Peaches loves them because 'the food will fall straight through them' - when she leaves the table after dinner it looks like a litter of hyaena puppies has been eating at her place.
The chairs are reproductions of a mid century design, they're about 15 years old, but look like they're straight off the showroom floor. They came out of a cafe. I have 10 and my friend has 10. They're powder coated fibreglass. I love them!
Little round cushions came with them, which I'll have to get recovered. I'll also need a mat or run under the table to break up the black chairs on the black floor. I just love a project.
I've also got this table...it's original though.
That's enough excitement!
