I happened upon these magical chairs that are reminiscent of the ant chairs by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen for $30 each at West Elm that are usually in the $75 range. After toying with the idea of stenciling them, I went back last night, only to hear they went the day after I was there, for $20 each. Totally not meant to be. Thank you jerkface salesman for pointing out those chairs were such a steal.

Some alternatives...

1. EBAY Ant Chair Knockoff

2. From West Elm Catalogue

3. Ant Chair History

4. Actual Ant Chairs via Hive

I need to be more decisive.

UPDATE: Speaking of Mid-Century Modern, check out this awesome image I came across, oddly from Playboy Magazine, July 1961.

George Nelson, Edward Wormley, Eero Saarinen, Harry Bertoia, Charles Eames and Jens Risom next to their creations. Wow, what a time that was.

    it'd be swell if you can place our ant chair link on your blog.

    Thank you,
