Finally feeling loved

Bertoia in good company
I was out of town all last week, so I didn't have any time to work on projects, but right before we left town I decided to do a little rearranging of the kitchen.  I decided I would move our stainless steel table out of the kitchen and in its place put our old pedestal table back in, and group my new Bertoia with the pair of Eames wire chairs I had bought a couple of years ago at an estate sale. I love the Eames chairs, especially only having paid $3 a piece, even though at the current time they don't match.
When I found the Eames pair they had been used as patio chairs, and one had breaks in the welds so bad it was no longer attached to the base. I took that chair to have it welded, and when I picked it up the man doing the work took it upon himself to also paint it. I'm sure he did this to cover up what mess the welding had made, but I wasn't sure I was going to paint them. Now, I like the contrast between the two but maybe someday I will paint the other one.
I do think the new Bertoia chair is enjoying the company he is keeping, and I hope he is finally feeling loved.

  1. I think your grouping looks fantastic. I don't think I'd change a thing! The mix of black and white is very cool.

    1. Thanks Dana, I'm happy with the grouping also! I think when the baby is out of the high chair I will also use a white shell chair at the table.

  2. I love your blog. I backed into it via the House Tour on Apartment Therapy. It's almost musical how everything in your rooms works together.
