Surely You've Got To Be Tired Of Looking At Lamps And Lighting, Right? So I Went Out And Picked Up Some Sweet Scandinavian Seating To Kinda Mix It Up! Status: IDENTIFIED! Farstrup Stolefabrik. .
I coulda' swore that I've seen these chairs on someone else's blog in the not too distant past, but I can't find 'em. I did find one mention of these on another blog along with the associated dining table but it was just a picture from a craigslist ad and a brief description of the ad itself. Nothing helpful.
As you can see there is a "Made In Denmark" stamp on the bottom of each chair and some other
illegible info. The seat and legs are very much like the Folke Palsson chairs I found a few Summers
back while on vacation. Obviously, these aren't a match but they do share the screw in legs and the
When I picked these up the nice lady had them in her garage and when I stepped inside to take a look
at them she pressed a button to open the second garage door, but accidentally pressed the button to
close the first. I stopped dead in my tracks and gave her a quick look. She gave the closing door a
quizzical look and turned on her heel to press the other button and I joked asking "Oh no...you're not
gonna murder me in here are ya? I'd heard the stories, but I never thought it would happen to me!"
She laughed (thankfully...kinda morbid humor on my part) and asked if these were going to fit in the
car (really?). I assured her that they would and paid the asking. Why does everybody think the
Focus wagon is so diminutive? Anyway, I should have these down at The Shag shortly. I just got to
figure a way to hang 'em from the rafters first!
