take a seat

this post is a tad late, but i went to the international furniture show in milan this past april.  if you just heard something, it was the sound of a dream being checked off my list!  i keep lists for everything and dreams are no exception.  the show was pretty spectacular.  it was that--a show.  it was like a U2 concert, but for furniture; 2,500,000 square' of glorious furniture.

the show was started in 1961 and was originally designed solely for italian manufacturers, but has continued to grow into what it is today.

i am chair obsessed, so this post mainly focuses on chairs that caught my attention, be it style, construction or ingenuity.
i pretty much want the above picture framed in my living room.
