3 days off work + 3 additional adults helping = a very good start.
I eventually did find a mid-century modern lounge chair that I really like: The Ny chair (pictured below). You may think this “glorified beach chair,” as my husband refers to it, designed by Takeshi Nii way back in 1958 is a unusual choice for a lounge chair, especially after I sang the praises of the IKEA Poang rocker in a previous post.
However, the Ny (sounds like nigh) chair is a deceptively comfortable, simple rocking chair that fold ups completely for storage in the nearest closet while not in use. Design trial and error showed that the vintage rocker we already owned looked better in the bedroom, so I bought another Ny chair to match. At a price point of $540 at Tortoise General Store in LA or $600 at Canoe in Portland, the Ny chair won’t break the bank if you decide you would like more than one. Pretty reasonable for a design classic, I think.
Notice the suspicious lack of dining room table and chairs? Or, why are the track lights white and not black? More to come on that soon.
