And while I was marveling over this wonderful piece by Verner Panton I was reminded of a picture which I had seen only yesterday in the latest Anthropologie catalog:

These chairs must be related, I guess it's the bohemian cousin....


Pictures via Vitra site and the latest Anthropologie catalog


  1. Beautiful colors...I'm more of country furniture I know boring. But the longer I'm here my taste is changing. Have a wonderful day!

  2. Thought of you today Victoria when Marion at posted beautiful photos of furniture makers Pinch. Enjoy!

  3. Oh I really like that first space and the chairs in the second photo. Chairs are so fun to look at! Haha that chair (in Anthropologie catalog) looks like a lot of fun. I wonder if it comes in other fabrics.

  4. I've been eyeing that anthro dress for a while now!

  5. What a interesting link, thanks.
    Have a nice weekend Victoria
