BERTOIA CHAIR {obsession}

Over the last five or six years I have obsessed over someday getting a pair {or more} of the Louis Ghost Chairs designed by Phillippe Starck, or at least a well-made knockoff since they are quite pricey. Although I still love that polycarbonate masterpiece, I'm beginning to obsess over another chair, this one designed by Harry Bertoia for Knoll in the mid 1950's. 

"If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them." ~ Harry Bertoia 

The Diamond Chair {my favorite}

Oh...and that Tulip Table {in above picture} designed by Eero Saarinen is another mid-century sculpture that makes my heart skip a beat.
