Ever since reading TOM SCHEERER DECORATES by Mimi Read, I've been bitten by the Bentwood Bug!
I couldn't help but notice how often he incorporates bentwood chairs and accessories into his design schemes.
A few summers ago I picked up a couple of classic bentwood side chairs like these but with leather seats at a garage sale.
I figured they would be great around a small table in my son's "future apartment."
They had a masculine vibe that resonated with me.
But it wasn't until I took note of the judicious use of bentwood that Mr. Scheerer uses to punctuate his spaces that I really began to have a broader understanding of their impact in design.
That is what I love about good design and great designers like my new crush, Tom Scheerer.
And so, last week, with bentwood on the brain, I spied this wonderful vintage bentwood coat rack at my favorite salvage yard and snapped it up!
I couldn't help feeling that Mr. Scheerer would be very proud of me!
