When’s the last time you ran across something that took you right back to kid-hood? I recently had the pleasure of restoring a 1960’s sling chair for a client, which reminded me of my parents’ house. The house I grew up in was a beautiful mid-century split level, designed by my uncle, Richard Brooks, who also designed his own home in Concord, Massachusetts.
It follows that I grew up around the furniture that fit those homes – simple, comfortable and ‘slim’ – nothing like the overstuffed behemoths of later times. I loved it then and still do.
With a little research I found out this is a Falcon Chair, created by Sigurd Ressell for Vatne Mobler, a Norwegian company.
