Take a {sexy} Seat

I love this man.*

*'s work.  :o)

This Dane was one of the most influential designers in the 20th century - hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark.


Verner Panton

Not to be confused with "pantone," the world's authority on color:

Panton's creations were very '60s...
sensual shapes, usually created out of molded plastic.

His most famous interior...

from - you guessed it - the 70's...

Can you imagine "party pics" that are probably hanging out in old photo albums??

I love that you can just HANG OUT on/in/with his furntiure designs.
My very personal favorite is this...

It is my life goal to own/build this piece. 
I have a template sketched and ready to go.  Now I need a Kick-A upholsterer!  :o)

Other designs you may be more familiar with are the
Cone Chair

the Heart Chair

And most definitely...

the S Chair

I have no idea what "S" stands for - but to me it stands for "sexy" - this curvaceous chair does not look like it should be standing up - like you would fall right out of it - but it's perfectly balanced!

This little beauty comes in any color imaginable and has really gained a lot of mainstream popularity..

Classic white looks so chic at the rugged wood dining table

White chairs at the dining table...this seems to be its own trend perhaps??

They also come in "baby" sizes - too too cute!

Where there are white chairs...there are also black chairs

Yes, you can even get them in a matte finish (above) or laquered finish (below)!

But my favorites are the colored ones!

This greenish yellow color is really cool - love the contrast w/ the sofa and rug!

I love this super bright yellow in the black/white bedroom!

(image: carriecan)

This is by far my favorite.  This super bright yellow against nature - I could sit here for hours!

The turquoise are beautiful.  So rich - I love "pops" of color like this!

Who wouldn't enjoy paying bills with a gorgeous hot pink chair like this at your desk?!

These chairs are on.another.level.  Literally - a church?!

(image: unknown)

I love seeing how people take a VERY 1960s plastic chair -
and mix it with their modern, antique, rustic...

This chair can literally "go" with anything!!

I hope everyone has a GREAT Thursday!
It's aaaaalmost Friday!
