accidental chairs?

















































































It's taken me a while but here are some 
of the great old chairs we saw in the 
Ulster American Folk Park in Ireland last month.

The top type of chair - square bit of wood 
that seems to have accidentally got involved 
with being a chair is my favourite approach.

Ohh, so many nice chairs! Think of if they could tell their stories...

I am an artist/antique dealer living in France; my clients would bite my hand off for these gorgeous chairs! Something about a chair is so personal; have been considering doing 'a piece' about the chair for several years now; perhaps the time is ripe?...
Great blog will be back soon; please feel free to pop by mine in a quiet moment.
Cheerio for now Linda
