I've got a bit of a thing for chairs

When I think of my favorite pieces by a designer they are almost always chairs. Which is probably why one of my favorite designers of all time is the Danish architect and designer Arne Jacobsen. That man knew how to make a beautiful chair. You have probably all seen The Seven and The Ant which are among the most selling, and most copied, chairs of all time. Many of Jacobsens designs are still in production by Fritz Hansen, and they recently started making my favorite again, the 1955 Grand Prix. I do prefer it in its original version though, in a teak finish with wooden legs. One day...
