England’s Dreaming Chaise by FAT

I had to show this to you as it was on exposition at the Stroom Gallery here in The Hague, my hometown, while I wasn’t aware of it…

England’s Dreaming is an antique chaise that is enveloped at one end by a miniature landscape juxtaposing scales and visual references. Lie back and think of England.

Via FAT which stands for Fashion Architecture Taste.

Tiny e-mail, huge inspiration! Thank you David Dick for pointing me to the twin Brothers Dressler site! I totally agree: their work swipes you off your feet!

Your e-mail made me decide to start with a separate page here with links to Blogs and sites of chair designers as more and more designers have their own blog which is a good thing! Stay tuned!

Back to the chair that David looooves:

I first saw this beautiful chair at Come Up To My Room Toronto 2008, and fell in love with it so completely it was hard for me to tear myself away. The hinges are reclaimed from a disused drafting table, hence the name. There are other chairs on this site, but this one is the standout in my mind.

As an aside: I have here in my office an old drawing board from my father that I now use as a table.
