Oh, congratulations on your first shell chair! My first one was white, too. :) Be careful, though, they're like potato chips. I think I have about 20 of them now, and no place to put them all! (They are easy to find old/used/cheap in the US.)

Also, good for you introducing Wille to great design. Have you shown him other work by Charles and Ray? They did so much that is appealing to children AND adults, it's all so accessible and engaging. I think you need a Hang-It-All next! :)


I'd love to get a vintage set of the armless ones for the dining table, but unfortunately they are not cheap or easiliy accessible here unless you buy the new ones :(. My other Eames fave is the La Chaise...
The Hang It All is really nice too. I can totally imagine one here somewhere!

Anna @ D16

If overseas shipping weren't so expensive, I would send you a set!

You might be the coolest mom ever. I love it.


I originally hale from Zeeland, MI, USA (home of Herman Miller), and you would not believe how many of this style chairs are sitting around in people's basements in that area. It wasn't until I started getting into design blogs that I realized they had some value. Growing up, they were just those "outdated chairs in everyone's basements." Little did I know!


I've been meaning to ask you where o where you found the miniature chairs??? I'm a bit of a chair lover myself. :)


Maj gadd! 3100 för en kontorstol? Eller har jag helt missuppfattat? OJ! Men den var fin.


Wow, Anna, I might just take you up on that. It 's probably still cheaper than to buy a set over here :)

C.E.R, I got some on Ebay and some from Hong Kong. The white one is from West Elm. Some museums with design exhibitions sell them too I've noticed, like the VA in London, England.

Lindzi, det är värre än så. Snurrversionen med hjul kostar 5600. Men till mitt försvar så kostar alla andra möblerna hemma bara hundralappar så om man slår ut det... :) Ibland vill man bara ha och får stå ut med hålet i plånkan efteråt... Det är ju en designklassiker och det var pengar tillbaka från skatten så det känns värt det.


Det gjorde ni rätt i! Förstår om Wille är lycklig nu!

I found mine in a used furniture store....Love your blog by the way.


I realize that this is very old, but I hope you also got him a plastic mat to protect the floor from the wheels. IKEA has one called Kolon.


HM, I made sure the wheels where the type for hard floors as opposed to the ones for carpet. Seem to work ok.
