Prince Charles Chair

In Design on May 20, 2010 at 4:07 pm

About a year ago, Modernica announced a 20th anniversary special edition “Prince Charles Chair” (as in Charles Eames) to much ire in the design community. I mean you should have seen the vitriol splashed about! What’s the fuss about? Los Angeles artist Peter Shire blended the classic molded Case Study fiberglass shell with traditional Queen Anne legs in walnut. Sacrebleu! I think it’s gorgeous, and I just ordered one in oatmeal fiberglass for a guest chair in the new office. It will be the perfect bridge between an antique Bokhara rug I heisted from my parents and my reissued mid-century George Nelson Swag Leg Table in walnut veneer, which arrives on Monday. Unfortunately the oatmeal-colored shells for all Modernica’s Case Study chairs are back-ordered, so my new piece of blasphemy should arrive in early July.

  1. The horror!!!! Just kidding, I love those chairs too.
