Emile Galle (146-1904) a French glass maker who ran the largest luxury glassware factory in Europe,
exhibited at the Exposition in Paris in the 19th century, displaying his cameo ware which was created
by making a vessel from numerous layers of coloured glass. A design was then cut into the top
layer exposing the contrasting colours beneath, a method that dates back to Roman Times. - Image Right >
I've always been an avid collector of chairs. Yes! Chairs ... not that I have had a lot of sitting around lately having travelled to Queensland to take part in the QADA fair and then on to Launceston in Tasmania to exhibit at the Tasmanian Antique Fair.
But chairs are charming characters, they seem to invite you to pause and ponder and make the moments matter.
When I saw a particular metal garden chair I even wanted the garden to be part of my home and the bella donna lilies now find cosy comfort between the arms of this handsome chair sitting in my favourite corner of the garden. It's amazing how one chair, a splash of bright fabric, or a colourful animal print can transform a chair, making it into a pleasant and welcoming statement.
There is an art however, to create a relaxed home stamped with your own style, bringing antique or inherited items into a 21st century setting making it stylish, not shallow, pretty but not cluttered, glamorous but not intimidating, modern without being impractical ... And this is the challenge! I have pictured some examples of different chairs that we have in stock at present.
