One of the restaurants on a cruise I was on a few years ago had several high back dining chairs, and there was something so fun and mystical about them. I don’t know if it’s because they seem so unsuspected, but since then, I love a good high back chair – whether its in a dining room or living room.
They’re just fun to sit in, right? In an Alice in Wonderland kind of way, if that makes any sense. I would love to incorporate high back chairs into a seating area in a dramatic living room one day. I like the outdoor chairs as well, though, and could definitely spend endless afternoons getting lost in them.
How about you?

The concept behind “My Desk” is freedom – creative freedom

Designed as a place to enjoy a coffee break or lunch with coworkers, I see a lot of possibilities for the Flower Table. Of course it can easily handle its intended function, but I also see it working great in crowded bars and restaurants because it is so compact. I’m not sure it’s designed to handle outdoor use, but if it is or could be wouldn’t it also look great on a deck or patio? Plenty of seating, and when not in use it is designed to be (and succeeds) as an interesting visual work.
The Flower Table is the work of Fatih Can Sarioz. Like I do with all of my posts, I read a little bit about this designer to better understand his work. And though he has an interesting background (as do most) there were two lines from his website that I found really interesting and inspiring and wanted to share with you. The first is that he thinks about “possibilities not objects” and the second that “he knows the design never ends”. Both food for thought in my opinion. See more innovative and inspiring work from Fatih here.
