Want This Chair

Somewhat creepy, and somewhat intoxicating is where the pieces from Vincent Darre new line Maison Darre set in my mind. Just like modern pieces, sometimes done from wall to wall, the look can be somewhat overwhelming. But this chair (below) for instance is a killer piece, and almost has more impact when pulled away from the other pieces in the collection. I in-vision it in a bedroom as seating for a vanity.  The mirror is also a cool piece. Perfect for an entry way. OK time for one bad joke about the mirror. “I can see myself in your pelvis.” Seriously. The pieces are awesome. You can check out more here. If you read French, even better, cause I slept in that class.

Want This Leg Splint

Posted in Interior Accessories on November 11, 2008 by thewantblog

Charles & Ray Eames designed the Leg Splint for the U.S. Navy in 1942. By the end of the war over 150,000 were produced. DWR LTD got their hands on one from what looks like the first production run, and are offering it up for bid today 12 noon. If you are in any way interested in modern design and it’s history, this splint is or should be on the top of your want list. There is only one available, so get on it!

You can find out more about Charles & Ray Eames here.
