I just recently purchased these wire chairs. They are inspired by Harry Bertoia who designed a similar chair in 1952.
My thought with these was easy maintenance. I am so very tired of scrubbing off tomato sauce, rice, and who-knows-what from the bellies of my wooden chairs. I can hose these down if necessary!
I’m a big fan of everything mid-century modern. I simply can’t get enough!
I’ve had one problem so far. These chairs came with black chair pads. I really don’t like the black. It gives the chairs an office furniture feeling.
I don’t like them. So I might as well play with them right? I have nothing to lose. I’m going to replace them anyway.
I grabbed a can of primer and immediately got rid of the black.
I reached for my big box of handmade stamps and started to play. I had no idea what I wanted which isn’t the best way to go into a project…
I wound up doing a little bit of everything!
The pads are cute. But in hindsight, I wish I made them all one pattern. It’s just too busy.
I have so much color and art going on around the house, that I actually like this dining area all white and tranquil.
I think these may be a very short-term addition. Only in creating the opposite have I affirmed my desire for white simplicity.
Hmm…I wonder if I have enough of that primer left?
