This week has flown by and I have been having a blast working over at the Kips Bay Show House! It has been so wonderful meeting a lot of people and in fact a lot of bloggers and being able to put names and faces together!
Today’s blog is a result of several inspirational things.
I have been working on finding the perfect breakfast table for a wonderful alcove in an apartment, I have coincidentally recieved emails requesting a suggestion of the same and then I found the table! I am chalking it all up to kismet. Which is now my new favorite word!
The top comes in a choice of laminates, wood vaneers or marbles and the aluminum
design themes so don’t be afraid to take a look as it would be just as great with modern chairs as it would be with a pair of Queen Anne lacquered white!
In his purist approach to design, Finnish-born Eero Saarinen sought out the essential idea and reduced it to the most effective structural solution. “The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world,” explained Saarinen. “I wanted to clear up the slum of legs.” In his pedestal collection, which includes a dining, coffee and side table, Saarinen realized his ideal of formal unity: “Every significant piece of furniture has a holistic structure.” Winner of the 1969 Museum of Modern Art Award.
