We all know that the Pantone Color of 2009 is Mimosa …
This beautiful color can be found all over the garden in many different flowers. One does not have to look hard to find it in just about any garden, especially at this time of year!
Yellow Trumpet Vine:
In late summer, this color can be found front and center! Many of these flowers are in full bloom now!
This week, I’m hooked on Mimosa, the 2009 Pantone Color of the year. To find out what others are hooked on this Friday, visit Hooked on House's Friday Blog Party or The Inspired Room's Beautiful Life Party today!
Any one who knows furniture will think of these three chairs first when considering the modern classics.
The Eames Lounge Chair and ottoman, Charles and Ray Eames, 1956
The Barcelona Chair, Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe, 1920
The LC2 Armchair, Le Corbusier, 1928
Now, here is something else to consider.
Who knew that someone would have the brilliant idea to turn these expensive timeless classics into cheap outdoor plastic stackables?
For his final thesis project at the Royal College of Art in London, Design Student Dirk Winkel came up with “A Stacking Hommage” offering a new take on these mid-Century Modern Classics. By turning the Eames Lounge Chair, the Barcelona Chair and the Corbusier LC2 Chair into lightweight plastic stackables, Winkel has made them affordable to the masses! We can only hope that one day, these lightweight classics will make their way into the aisles of Walmart, Target or Ikea and into the hearts of the masses, eventually replacing these beauties, or should I say uglies, across porches and patios everywhere.
This week, I’m hooked on reproducing modern classic furniture into affordable plastic stackables for use outdoors! To see what others are hooked on, please visit Hooked on Houses’ Friday Blog Party HERE or The Inspired Room’s Beautiful Life Friday HERE.
