I Love Tufted Furniture Blog
I came across I Love Tufted Furniture Blog which is a blog that is solely focused on a niche of our niche chairs: Just tufted chairs benches and headboards. Maybe because their niche is so small that there is little movement on the blog nowadays. Their last post dates from February 27, 2012.
I found this interview on Herman Miller’s Blog series Lifework. It’s with Annie Cogan of Chairs and Buildings. Annie is a fellow chair lover. She’s an artist/designer/architect. She lives and works in the same building. First a brownstone in Brooklyn, NY later in a Victorian Mansion in a small town in Mississippi and lately in a commercial building in Charleston and recently she has moved again. There are many similarities here, but I will address them later (maybe).
I found this nice antique Windsor Writing Chair on the blog The Antique Chair Guide, a blog that describes the various periods in antique chair design. In my opinion it should be updated a bit more frequently. But it is worth wile a visit.
Update: The site seems having disappeared since.

To my huge surprise Chair blog even made it into the shortlist in the category Art, Culture and Entertainment blogs of the Dutch Bloggies, but Mick! won this award. And deservedly so. Nice design! Congratulations Mick!
Despite my earlier skepticism I’ve made it into the second round of the Dutch Bloggies Awards.
I’ve been put on the long lists in the category
Art, Culture and Entertainment blogs
together with 9 other blogs originating from The Netherlands:
- Art Update
- Beats Nothing [site disappeared]
- Cultuur Podium Online
- Eeuwig weekend
- Het Roze Olifantje
- New Work, and
Thank you, Jury!
Tomorrow Night will be Awards Night here in The Hague as my fine city sponsors the event …we will see.
Timing couldn’t have been worse.
Last month KPN (Dutch Telecom) decided in its wisdom to stop web hosting for another site I operate. That induced me to look for another hosting company that I used already for quite some time for my two blogs.
I needed some reshuffling of my domains and then the problems started to hit the fan big time. It meant that all had to be transferred from one server to another server of my provider.
After having transferred this blog from one server to the other server I found out after the fact that I had lost many links to the photos.
I also had messed up urls and internal links of the blog and am now working my ass off to redress that in a cumbersome manual weeding out of the errors post by post (and there are over 1150 posts now….)
Although many have been repaired, there still remain errors….
At least the 2009 posts are more or less in order now, but still many to go…
In addition my new provider’s network crashed two times big time last week…
So if you are checking this out, please give me some leeway 🙂
