Apryl Miller her good self

Blogging is not only about finding great people and great stuff: Sometimes great people find you through your Blog, like Apryl Miller. She is an artist living and working in New York City. She loves chairs and occasionally refits chairs. As the weather is finally so kind as to admit Spring has arrived here in The Hague and Apryl’s stools and chairs are very colorful, I deemed it fit to publish about her today.
