200 Years of Chairs - Currently running at MOCA thru April 3. Here’s a peek at what you will see. Check it out!
I LOVE mid-century modern and the chair above was my favorite of the exhibit. Granted, it is not for everyone’s home, but it sure is fun and what a great conversation piece.
Here is a look at a few more . . .
“Grasshopper Armchair” by Eero Saarinen, beautiful bent wood frame with fully upholstered moulded plywood seat shell, circa 1947-48
‘High Stool’ from renowned architect Frank Gehry. This cardboard construction stool was initially conceived as low-cost furniture, its design, along with 13 other pieces in the “Easy Edge” series, was so successful that Gehry withdrawn them from production after only three months. Gehry feared that his ascendancy as a popular furniture designer would distract him from realizing his potential as an architect. Circa 1972
Don’t fear, if you love a more traditional chair, there are many of those on display as well
