Do you own a "statement chair'?
One King's Lane launched a new a Decor Resource Center where you can learn about the history of different types of chairs. They have compiled a timeline describing which chairs were popular at different times. My personal favorite chair, The Falcon Chair, was not listed on the timeline but is too good not to mention.
The Falcon Chair rose to popularity in the 1970s during the Scandinavian Modern movement. I acquired mine when I got married in 1975 and still love it today! The Falcon chair was designed by Sigurd Ressell and manufactured by Vatne Mobler Norway.
My husband and I loved Scandanavian Modern when we got married; since we were both raised in homes with antiques, this was our attempt at breaking away from our roots and developing our own style. Some of our early acquisitions are no longer with us, but this chair and several other teak mid-century modern case goods are mixed into the 'transitional' style decor in my home. Here is the Falcon Chair in our master bedroom today.
Bookmark the One King's Lane Decor Resource Guide for your design files today! Hopefully the Falcon Chair will be added to their guide!
