anthropologie thursday—special friday edition

flakesChair
so sorry i was missing yesterday—i took a much needed personal day from blogging. i'm sure you all understand :)

anyway, i couldn't let the week go by without sharing these fabulous flakes chairs—don't they just look lickable? yum. remarkably durable and lightweight, piiroinen's fiberglass-and-steel stacking chair was originally designed for the aarhus art museum of denmark. our version is cast with a signature marimekko print featuring scarlet poppies. (yellow and lime poppies, too!)
