Something Beautiful is a self-imposed initiative to find a visual feast for each day of a year.
Furniture. That’s what I’ve been thinking of . . . especially beautiful bright colored Adirondacks chairs. The icons of east coast vacation life appeared around 1900 and were immediately embraced by the lake crowd in the Adirondack Mountains.
Perhaps it is the end of summer that made me think of them today. In my image hunt, it was the variations on the traditional style that enchanted me. Particularly, the curvaceous, white John Kirschenbaum. What wonderful ideas and incredible craftsmanship. Though it is not my typical style, I was completely with the Kirschenbaum handpainted chair. The “Garden Goddess” chair was painted by Felipe Perez, who was commissioned by the client after they received the white painted chair. The Golden Goddess—La Dea Dorata.
