Oh I LOVE this!!! Too funny I just started writing a post on the 3 Louis!! When I finally finish will be sure to link up to this!! :)xoxo
Got the Judith Miller book "Chairs" for Christmas. So I'm enjoying chairs more than I though possible. This variation on a theme shows how great the theme is. One idea in the book is that when chairs stated to "lighten up," they started to get interesting.
We didn't make it here last time, but it's definitely on my list for next trip. Have you been to the Victoria & Albert in London?
I love architecture and you always have an interesting post. How fun would it be to have a collection of these hanging...perhaps on a loft wall as art? I am new to blogging and slowly finding other locals.
Oh I would want them all on a wall!99 chairs on a wall.....pve
How cool is that? Love it.
This is a great way to learn about the nuances of classic French chair design as it evolved over the years. I haven't been to Paris, but my favoite part of the Metropolitan Museum in NY (after the period rooms, of course) is the Henry Luce Study Galleries, where you can see a ton of furniture piled up chock-a-block style, at eye level so you can study & compare the details at close range.
Wow! All that is missing is a soundtrack of Louie, Louie to make this surreal even wilder!
Very dramatic indeed!Fabulous!
I love these Louis', all lined up like little soldiers, so matter-of-factly! They take on a bizarrely human appearance, it's fantastic. Lauren
Fantastic! I love it!David @ Ashfield Hansen Design
Gasp!Swoon...Faint!!Those are amazing!
Breathtaking for sure! I wish that every style had this type of 3D visual reference.
They should have back lit them like in the Valentino movie! XXOO
what a picture...what a picture...!!!
Very neat and smart. i like alot.
i am with custard!!!!what a picture!!!i love chairs, so i love this.xxx
i would love even a poster of this.agreed, like so many others how fabulous to anchor your favorite chairs against a wall.
Now of course I know all of your readers are intimately familiar with the differences between the Louis' XIV, XV, and XVI, but are all able to also recognize the characteristics of Louis Farouk and its cousin, Bay Ridge Louis? It's important to know those Louis' as well...
have you ever gone to Yale's furniture Study? It is a great resource - i did a post on it a while back - http://mrrdesign.blogspot.com/2009/10/for-anyone-interested-in-american.html or go directly to Yale's site
