Kudos

Inspiring Interior Design Galleries
I noticed UK based design blog Design 55 Online giving us kudos by mentioning Chair Blog in their Showcase of Inspiring Interior Design Galleries which disappeared since.

Chair Blog: Located in Den Haag (The Hague), The Netherlands, Guido J. van den Elshout (GJE) operates a very small but very luxurious 3 suite hotel. He started his Chair Blog in April of 2007 because, “once, I wanted to buy a couple of chairs for my little hotel (it must have been 2000 or 2001) and found out there was hardly any organized info about chairs.” After plunging into his research, he became captivated. GJE admits that he was drawn into the chair blogging world (which I think he is the only citizen of) by the sheer brilliance that it takes to create a truly comfortable chair. His personal inspiration came from the story of Michael Thonet (1796-1871) and his bent wood chairs. “He truly democratized the chair for the masses. In addition he was one of the first who recognized that designing chairs is an art in itself.”

Note: There are many more Chair o Holics, see for instance our own list of Top Inspiring Chair Design Blogs and Sites or our category chair inspiration.
