A dream came true this week…I managed to get my hands on a set of four…yes four Bertoia stools! I’m in design classic seating heaven!

I was perusing Evilbay as usual and there they were, they started shouting at me instantly and well you know me, I just had to listen. David had recently said that he also liked them and was very quick to say when I dropped them into conversation “Would you like them for Christmas”! I of course weighed it up from every possible angle as a Libran does but it didn’t take me too long before I said “Yes please!!”

They really are gorgeousness on a stick and as the seller said “they’re built like tanks”. I have to agree because the build quality really is something rather special. I’m not too sure about the purple seat pads, I like them but not sure if I like them enough. I would much prefer black or grey but they are 150 quid each, what do you think?

So Merry Christmas one and all, mine has turned out to be very merry already!

I have been meaning to tell you all about one of my latest purchases, a melamine Krenit Salad bowl and severs. They were included on my recent obsesslist and I could wait no longer. The salad severs were recently reissued by Norman Copenhagen along with the bowl, it’s the same design by Herbert Krenchel which was launched onto the world in 1953 but in a new material. I was concerned that the bowl wouldn’t be as gorgeous as the originals I bought but it is just in a different way.

I also bought the Habitat floor lamp which was on my list for the loft and there will be pics soon. I’ve been hard at work up there and it’s getting there slowly. I have just been informed that something else which is on the list will be a birthday present from David and it’s something I have lusted after for a very long time with a hefty price tag! I can’t wait and I know the perfect place for it!!!

A new occasional feature about what has caught my obsessive beady eye. A check list of gorgeousness if you like of what keeps me awake at night because I simply must have them ( eventually ) and how they will look and where they will go in our apartment…

…I posted about a new Krenit obsession a few weeks ago and well I’ve bought four more to keep the red one company! I just couldn’t help myself. At least they don’t cost as much as my Eames chair addiction although they are rising in price lately.
