A tale of two chairs…

A tale of two chairs…

Earlier this week I opened the door to a delivery man holding an absolutely enormous box. For a moment I stared at him blankly and thought “that can’t be for me, I haven’t ordered anything that large” but then I realised the contents of the box were actually for me!

Inside was a beautiful Robin Day 675 chair from Case Furniture, my runner’s up prize in a competition I took part in in September. Although I missed out on the top prize, it was actually the 675 chair that I had had my eye on all along and in more than one respect it was rather appropriate that it should have been this chair that I won…
Firstly my winning blog post is all about the designer Robin Day and in particular his Polo chairs which we had my childhood kitchen. It was those yellow plastic Polo chairs that inspired me to buy my own yellow plastic chair about 15 years ago, and it’s sat at my desk ever since…
However, as much as I love it, as soon as I started my Graphic Design course it became painfully (literally) apparent that sitting on woven plastic for a good length of time is not comfortable. My 675 chair came to the rescue just in time and I’m absolutely delighted with it. Thank you Case Furniture!

It is very pretty. It looks softer too. I usually sit at the kitchen table and blog. Yeah, my butt isn’t even there anymore. I think it’s about time to invest in a better chair. Haha!
