Seating for Two

This past weekend I saw three chairs on the side of the road. One was severely damaged but two were in excellent condition. The sign said “Free”! Honestly, I see chairs by the side of the road all the time. The fact is oftentimes you can’t give the darn things away. Also most frequently the chairs I see are not a style I want in my home.

I have had dozens of ladder back chairs over the years. But these are so very different from all the others. These are taller and much more slender than any others I have seen. Though they are durable enough to seat a 200 pound man, they are sleek and delicate in appearance.

I have to go, Charles is about to serve me coffee and ricotta pie from Caffe Sicilia.
