Saarinen Slideshow on Slate has a great slideshow up of one of my favorite architects/furniture designers, Eero Saarinen. I’m especially partial to him as I inherited two lovely but beat-up womb chairs and one grasshopper chair from my grandparents. Here’s what the grasshopper looks like:

All three of these chairs he designed are incredibly comfortable to sit and read in. I think the grasshopper is my favorite. The slildeshow makes me want to take a trip home to DC to see the exhibit at the National Building Museum. Take a look here.

    Hi, Eliza! That is an awesome chair… we have one, too! In teal though. 🙂 Nice seeing you at Jasmine’s!
