Chairs, Chair Design and Chair Designers

Moved, new Theme, new Header and 14nth Anniversary

I have moved the site to another hosting company, a Dutch hosting company VDX NL. In addition I have chosen another theme and another header photo the Filo Sofa. Unfortunately the sofa is a one off project, but in my view it is a must have!

April 30, 2007, I started this blog, not anticipating how many chairs I would be able to feature. More than 5,000 already and going strong. Not paying attention to the real ugly or middle of the road ones….

Hora Barneveld is a Dutch furniture shop that sells Baxter seating by Baxter Italia and designed by Draga & Aurel for Baxter Made in Italy

Founded in 2007 in the town of Como, Italy, Draga & Aurel is a multi-disciplinary design studio that works along the spectrum of furniture, textile and interior design.

Draga Obradovic began her career in the fashion industry, first working in London and Milan as a textile designer before eventually settling in Como. Aurel K. Basedow graduated from Milan’s Accademia di Belle Arti with a degree in Fine Arts, having previously trained as a carpenter and woodworker.

Thanks to their sympathetic methods, combined with an artist’s approach to material and composition Draga & Aurel are widely recognized for their clever reinvention of bespoke vintage design pieces. Their showing at 2009’s Salone del Mobile introduced the duo to the world stage; it followed the partnerships with Italian leather manufacturer Baxter, wallpaper brand Wall&Deco, the major American fashion retailer Anthropologie and the Italian luxury furniture company Visionnaire.
