Love it!

Have you sat in one? I read somewhere that they're not that comfy?

I adore the second image down!

Your post makes me want to buy a 'herd' of these chairs! :)

The blue-legged specimen is worthy of gracing a the prized catch, displayed for all to oooh and aaahhh over.

Now that was fun!


so beautiful! i've never seen painted ones before, loving the blue one!


I can't believe you managed to track down all these images of this chair. the more i saw the chair, the more i liked it.


I wonder what sound their little wooden legs make in a stampede.


Love that first photo - and the blue one is lush!

Anne, just to let you know the cushion arrived today - its stunning I love it!

Wanted to say thanks again!

i thought i had a favorite until i saw that blue one! i'm partial to painted furniture. and that blue...made me swoon. beautiful craftsmanship, whether you had only one in your space or more, they are perfect either way.

Rachel (Heart of Light)

The shape is so perfect! I wish I could capture one.


I love this chair - especially in blue!

Absolutely Not Martha

you must have been reading my mind about chairs, anne--thought about them a lot last weekend but only came up with this:


Speaking of chairs, what ever happened to the good 'ol papasan? I had one back in my early college years and thought it was the coolest thing around. That is, until I had too many unsuspecting guests flip over in it... and a cat that decided it was a litter box.


The Wishbone is a super cool chair (love the name, too). Have you sat in it before? I wonder how comfortable it is?

Anonymously Chic

oh what fantastic chairs. i'm especially smitten with the last blue one.


I have to say that the blue is my favorite. And a spectacular post as always, Anne.

callie grayson

i really like the blue one! and the black. One of my very good friends works for the company that sells Hans Wegner.... oh, how i wish to buy some of his furniture! it is all so beautiful

Pretty Little World

So pretty! I love the case full of butterflies in that first photo!

BTW, I passed on a blog award to you:

Shell Sherree

Anne, what an inspired way to show us the versatile habitats of these iconic four legged beauties! {I love those butterflies, too. I do hope they died of natural causes, just like my pink cushioned-papasan did many moons ago.}

The Deco Detective

I love this post, Anne=) What an exciting tale!
Hope you'll have an equally exciting weekend!

I am crazy about that blue one although I've always been on the fence about it due to the fact that it looked like it might be uncomfortable. But it is very very pretty!

{this is glamorous}

What a beautiful collection of photos! Always loved this chair, and even moreso after seeing it in such lovely rooms.

velvet and linen

A classic.
I would love to design something that is still popular 50 years later!
Have a great weekend, Anne.



I wish I had a wishbone chair. Possible my favourite of them all. x


this is one of my absolute most favorite styles. so simple classic and yet down to earth... what a fantastic collection of images you've found to illustrate them! i love the darker walnut tones...


I had one back in my early college years and thought it was the coolest thing around.

I want to express, on behalf of all of us, our great pleasure in having the President of the Cameroon visit us, and the members of his Cabinet.

Make Money Online

I see that you are into blogging as well. Blogging is now becoming the new fad, especially for new comers. Look at free blogging platforms like Tumblr, they are simply going through the roof. It is no no surprise why blogging is so popular today because it is a cool, hip way to make money online.


Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts.
