Designer Chairs

The designers behind these amazing and timeless pieces of art must have been geniuses. Some of these designs are as old as 100 years, yet put them in any contemporary setting and they will speak for themselves. I love them all and what a story does each one of them have.  I have a book called Vintage Furniture, collecting & living with modern design classics by Fay Sweet, and it tells the story of so many of these masterpieces along with the artists that have made them.

Fallingwater

Fallingwater: What a fitting name for a masterpiece.

This beautiful contemporary design from Frank Lloyd Wright, in 1935, shows how much ahead of his time he was.
