Garden Design Details: Wire Frame Chairs

I have a renewed interest in wire frame chairs on the patio, so I’ve created a round-up of some favorites. They can be funky, classic or wacky and whimsical.  They can sit by themselves as a conversation piece or they can be a part of a larger functional grouping.  Many, in my opinion, need a beautiful cushion to make the comfortable for any length of time.

Here are a few…some serious, some not.  Some you may have seen here before, some not.

    It always makes me laugh when I see the Bend wire chairs posted on a blog. I met the designer (friend of a friend) and accompanied them on the photo shoot for the “Bunny” chair (beaches and hills of Malibu) on Thanksgiving day two years ago.

    I was really curious as to what would inspire someone to design a chair. What was the passion and drive behind undertaking such a project. I don’t think I really got an answer. I was really surprised by how comfortable it was.

    Great pics. Still hard to beat Harry Bertoia’s designs for Knoll though. Classics for sure.
