It's the holidays, which means spending time with family and friends, buying gifts and cooking vast amounts of food. With all of these people crowding the table during meals it is important to consider the seating arrangements. Are there enough chairs? Are they comfortable, and how is their aesthetic?
With so may questions to mull over when preparing your holiday dining room, we'd like to provide a few seating options to ease the decision making process:
A set of "Bikini" wire dining chairs by Charles and Ruth Eames (U111015)
The bookcase serves an important purpose; holding and displaying books and various objects. However its the way these objects are displayed that defines the owner's character. Is the bookcase minimal and streamlined, free of any excess articles? Or, is it filled to the brim with everything and anything?
The bookcase can be appreciated in either state, but it's a little more fun to have a chaotic case of curiosities, don't you think?
Our latest piece is a set of early 1950's black wire and upholstered Eames dining chairs. We decided to pair them with a rustic oak wine table in a cold concrete environment. The product of combining mid century vintage pieces with true 19th century antiques is very refreshing.
