At last I've taken a few pics of our new Eames black chairs from Pink Flamingos. Unfortunately as much as I loved my Arne Jacobsen Series 7 chairs, they just didn't look or fit right around the Saarinen Tulip dining table. I'm sure they would look fine around the larger version but under ours they looked awkward and protruded out far too much. They played on my mind like nails being pulled down a chalkboard.
These black beauties are perfection. Having the same colour has unified the look and black has really brought out the veining of the table. We will have six of them when the other two arrive but we have discussed (and this surprisingly came from David!) that we get another black Eames upholstered arm shell so that we can have one either end of the table.
Is my chair addiction sated? For the moment yes but one thing that I do want is for that flooring to go! I put it down nearly ten years ago and it's well past it's sell by date!
