seems all the cool homes have cool spindle back chairs.

well, count me in as a cool spindle back chair owner. (plus i already have that other mobler chair.)
i just need the cool house to put it in now. that’s all.
spindle back rope chair.
no price on it at the thrift store.
when i asked to get a price, the guy said, “$20.” i was all, “$20???? for this little chair????”
“ok then, $10.”
i said, “ok, ten.”
(and i NEVER barter.)
there were no markings and it was oak rather than teak, but it definitely had a danish “feel.”
turns out it’s a jørgen bækmark, designed in 1959 for mobler.
and then i made a pillow for it.
because i am in pillow-mode.
but i only had a small scrap of this fabric, so she’s a tiny pillow, 13″. scale looks odd with this chair. i’ll have to make a different, slightly bigger pillow.
no problemo since i’m in PILLOW-MODE!
anyway, i love my chair.
haven’t seen any of these little enamel ladles in quite some time, but happened upon a little red one in good condition for a quarter so i bought it, too.
