on my radar...charlotte perriand chairs.

the really fabulous blog, modern findings, has turned my attention to these mid~century modern charlotte perriand leather chairs this afternoon. they are unique, timeless, and definitely on my radar...
modern findings highlights these chairs in their updated dining room. complete designer chair eye~candy i'm telling ya. charlotte perriand (for those of you that might want to know) was a french architect/designer who lived and designed from 1903-1999. you can read a little more about her here.

this quote by perriand sums up well her inspiration, attitude and basis for design: "the extension of the art of dwelling is the art of living- living in harmony with man’s deepest drives and with his adopted or fabricated environment."

i love that. and i love these chairs! enjoy!
