Take A Seat!
I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw the wood veneer chairs we were given to re-imagine. I admired the elegant design and utility of the sled base and waterfall front edge. I didn’t want to change a thing! After weeks of staring at the chair, I found my fit. I placed a black onyx bead within the slender empty space of the cutout design on the back of the chair. And it felt just right.
