Both Martin and I enjoy good design but since we don’t have a lot of money we tend to decorate our home quite thriftily in what could be called dumpster design.
Wille spends quite a lot of time by his computer and expressed a while back that he’d like a proper office chair with wheels and swivel action. I researched and googled and came to the conclusion that most office chairs are plain ugly. IKEA has a couple of ok looking ones but I don’t really want to bring any that obvious IKEA pieces into our home.
While googeling I came upon one of my favourite chairs, the Eames plastic armchair and realised I didn’t know it comes with wheels! I have to say I still prefer the rocking, eiffel or wooden bases but the shell being so nice I can live with the wheely base. And besides, it’s going into Wille’s room and he specified wheels.
The cool thing is that Wille is getting more interested in design. We have a miniature chair collection and also a book on chair design and I love that he knows the Tulip from the Pastille and that he is really pleased to get a designer chair instead of an IKEA one. I’m hoping that in addition to giving him a great comfortable office chair it will spark his interest in design even more.
