Sometimes it happens while I'm looking for a specific product at work. Other times it's when I'm searching furiously for something I need for my own house. But I am always, always falling hard for products for which I have absolutely no use. It's like coming across the perfect catch of a bachelor when you're just not in the market for a mate.
So I'm just going to start playing matchmaker, and putting these beauties on display so other, more eligible people can fall in love. Today's lineup? Chairs and stools. Let's have a look.
Bachelor #1: The Handsome Buck
I mean, those legs. They make me knock-kneed—just like him.
Clara Bar Stool by Noir.
Bachelor #2: The Modern Artist
An old soul with an updated edge, this guy is a twist on a classic Michael Thonet-designed bentwood chair. That ombre finish melts me. There's also a version with the ombre in reverse.
No. 89 Le Corbusier chair, Thonet Australia.
Bachelor #3: The Knight in Shining Armor
This fella has seriously regal style, but it's softened by the limed wood finish. The detail-on-detail is a little showy, but he's fun to look at, so why not?
Shuksan stool, Wayfair.
Who's ready for a date?
