sit

Dear Chair, oh, how I love thee! I scored a couple garden chairs on sale recently, which pitched my low simmer of constant chair love back into a full boil. These are mostly photos of chairs and benches previously posted from garden shows, garden tours. Where the designer and/or setting is unknown, no attribution is given, making this a chair tear sheet. At the end of August, with temperatures hopefully cooling, some of the best chair weather is still ahead.

    Love all the wonderful places to sit. Some of the chairs/benches look much more comfy than others though.

  2. I have a similar obsession, and it includes dragging home pre-owned and needy outdoor chairs like my two French canvas beach slings that *only* need new fabric on them. Those sweet little concrete birds are the perfect touch for the big cast-concrete settee.

    So which are your new chairs?

    @Michelle, that’s the kind of argument that goes on a lot in this house! Marty really analyzes a chair for comfort, me more so for looks and hopefully comfort too. Which I know is foolish but I just can’t help it 😉
    @Jane, so many project chairs, so little time! I was lazy and used old photos so didn’t get photos of my new chairs, just a couple green metal chairs from Crate&Barrel that don’t match anything else!

    A good reminder to gardeners to sit down a little more often. Oh, just one more weed to yank first.
