Even Though I've Been Feeling Under The Weather For The Last Couple Of Days Or So, I Still Managed To Procure A Nice Set Of Mies Van Der Rohe "BRNO" Chairs Last Sunday Evening. Status: Paired!
Sadly, no tags. Probably not Knoll since the seller...well, said they weren't. Still, they got style for miles and they'll go nicely with the chrome base table I featured a few days ago. I've still got to fix up the top of that table though, so it'll be a while.
I just couldn't pass up these classically beautiful BRNO chairs when I saw them pop up on craigslist.
Turns out they were being offered as part of John Pils' (local artist) shop closeout. A fellow vendor at
The Green Shag Market was running the sale and she was letting these go at a very comfortable price.
The upholstery needs a bit of cleanup but even as is, they look pretty good. All the chrome looks
great. These will look great with that chrome X base dining table that I featured a few days ago. Ugh,
I so need more space to showcase all the great dining sets I have! There's a fantastic Burke set at The
Green Shag at the moment, I've got a Drexel Declaration drop leaf and four chairs in the garage, a
Heywood Wakefield Whalebone table and 6 Dogbone chairs at the shop...as well various other bits
and pieces scattered about the garage!
