Harry Bertoia

Bertoia on the side

Bertoia again. When I did my ode to the Bertoia side chair I forgot to include my fave Bertoia chair photo of all time. Found it when I was flipping through At Home with White tonight -- oh my, that book is so very lovely. Then found it on Atlanta Bartlett's site here. Love this pic -- it's all in the mix:

Also, I realized that Anne Sage had already posted her own ode to the Bertoia side as part of her series Chairs of the World on her blog The City Sage, which is a new fave of mine. So cool, and interesting that we chose mostly the same pics (including this one). Alas, very much enjoyed her recent ponderings on the Panton chair as well. Check her post out here.

Just used a Bertoia chair in a shoot and I am newly enamoured of this modern classic. Heaven knows I have a weakness for a well-designed chair, but I hadn't given Harry's creation the time of day till now. Feel like I've been missing out. I like it best in white. Here is a small ode. These are well-circulated pics (first 2 from the ubiquitous Domino; the last, Living Etc.) but I still like seeing them all together in one place. Yum.
