This is post number 100 and the final post in a series 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day.

Yay! We succeeded. If you wish, you can congratulate us. Also you can still congratulate us for our 6th Anniversary 100 posts earlier 😉

When I started the series I was not sure I could find 100 decent orange chairs. Prior we had featured only 20 orange chairs. Now even with the help of various people I’ve found more than 100 orange chairs. I’ll feature them in the near future, but the series 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day will be limited to the 100 orange chairs featured.

Thank you all for enduring this diarrhea of chair posts today!

I was planning to feature an Orange Thonet no. 14 as the 100th chair, but couldn’t find a decent one. Therefor I conclude the series with a famous chair Arne Jacobsen originally designed for the SAS Hotel in Copenhagen in the 50ies. After all I’m a hotelier with a chair hobby.

Stay with us in May which we have coined blue chair month.

Chair Blog’s 6th Anniversary – Democracy Rules Chair

Chair Blog’s 6th Anniversary – Democracy Rules Chair

Exactly 6 years ago I started this blog. A big thanks you to all our readers who made it grow and grow.

Rather than looking back, I would like to look forward to this day:

Chair Blog’s 6th anniversary coincides with Inauguration Day in my country, The Netherlands. Today H.R.H. Prince Willem Alexander of the Netherlands will be inaugurated as King of The Netherlands. His wife H.R.H. Princess Maxima will get the personal title Queen of The Netherlands.

As an intro to our today’s attempt to feature 100 Orange Chairs for Inauguration Day to remember and celebrate Inauguration Day, I want to start the day with this Democracy Rules Chair. Back in the 17th Century The Netherlands became one of the first Republics of the World and is now one of the last Kingdoms of the World.

Always special those Dutch.

Revamping Chair Blog

As you can see, I’m in the process of quickly revamping the site with another theme. Reason is that it seems the Thesis Theme is giving the site hiccups and makes it disappear from time to time. Stay tuned!

WordPress 3.5

I’ve just updated the site to Version 3.5 of WordPress.

Just to vent my annoyance with Thesis which I usually use here as a theme. I’ve now enabled theme 2012 for a while.


And back to Thesis 1.8.5. again.

Again a Tumblr Import

A short notice that I’ve imported the files from Chairblog|Tumblr up to now (some 1,300 posts) once again here.

For the moment they are only readable for our author team, as most need editing and some are doubles of posts already existing. I hope my fellow authors will give me a hand with the editing.

Slowly, but gradually you will see them appear in the category Tumblrd.

The reason is I have a feeling  that we need our resources here on the blog rather than on a third party network. Moreover, tumblring distracts me  from posting here too much.
