Romace

Paris
This is my first set I created at polyvore. It is a really awesome website I just found (I am pretty sure most of you already know websites like this one).
Anyway, I really
LOVE romantic and vintage clothing and anything connected to Paris, so I decided to share a little of it with you. I think it is great for almost every occasion and it is just so feminine and pretty! Don't you think? :)

#1 Egg chair

I have thought of uploading a series of posts about design and I came to a decision to make it more of a revision. It is clear that vintage furniture and antiques are highly appreciated, and learning more about world's famous pieces sounds intriguing. Therefore, I am going to post once a week something about those amazing pieces. I hope you'll enjoy :)

The first one will be The Egg chair.
Designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958
Manufactured by Fridz Hansen


This chair was designed for Radisson SAS hotel in Copenhagen. It was designed as a couch as well, but it wasn't nearly as successful as the chair. The couch was made as a special edition, not only due to the fact it was very expensive, but it was also very difficult to make. The problem was that it was too big to be upholstered by one piece of leather and it would have unpleasant stiches right in the middle.

The Egg chair celebrated its 50th anniversary last year. For this special occasion Fritz Hansen released a limited edition of 999 chairs only. All of them were made by chocolate brown suede on the back and chocolate brown leather on the front; the base - in solid bronze and hand polished to create a unique finish to the chair. Each of the unique chairs are engraved under the seat cushion with a number and a brief text about the history of the chair. You can read more here.

Colour


Hello you guys! I know I have been away for far too long, but now I'm back :) I really needed some time away from my computer. You can now follow me on Twitter if you'd like :)

Anyway, I love this photo, because orange and blue is my favorite colour combination. I remember preparing for my exams a couple of years ago, and when I had to learn all about contrasting colours and colour combination I understood why these two looked so great together :)

p.s. I wish it was spring already :) we had snow here during the weekend...
Have a great week! <3
