The last few days have been kind of fun. Yesterday I was given a Featherston chair...!! But only as a temporary loan. Ha! I didn't knock it back though.
My mates Chris and Susan who are publishers of the new book Australian Modern Design have an excess of chairs and not enough space to store them...typical dilemma for chair collectors. There were a few Featherstons, a Saarinen and some other great pieces that were just sitting in storage. Chris thought one of the Featherstons should have a holiday at the Sow's Ear...until it is wanted again. Classic!
How often can you get the 'designer look' without actually paying the 'designer bucks'?
The Featherston is now residing in our Queenslander bedroom until it is recalled for active duty at the modernist front.
How cool is that? And what's even cooler is that I got my hands on a copy of Australian Modern Design which will be out soon at selected locations nationally.
Stay tuned to hear more about this fabulous new limited edition book about mid-20th century Australian architecture and design...
