A cup and saucer

white-vintage-wire-mesh-outdoor-garden-chairs-flying-saucer-style-after-Harry-BertoiaWhen the first rays of morning sun finally break through the local fog, it’s time to sit with a cup of tea and contemplate the world from the  curve of these flying saucer chairs.

We are still researching the best ways to bring them back to their former glory. But for now, a fresh coat of paint, a cheerful cushion and a contemplative spot gives them new lease on life.

Their wire-mesh form reminds us a little of Harry Bertoia, the renowned designer and sculptor, who once said of his furniture:

“If you look at these chairs, they are mainly made of air, like sculpture. Space passes right through them.”
