We were back at Puces du Design for the opening yesterday and it was full of great finds. This is really one of the best places to shop Modernism in Paris.
I spy! A pair of original Pierre Jeanneret armchairs in need of some serious love.
The good news is that the price is one to love as well.
Committee Chair model in solid Teak with “Compass” type side leg. This model is known to have been made for the administrative buildings of Chandigarh (The project in India that Jenneret worked on with Le Corbusier)
And as a little inspiration … Here is a photo of a pair of the same chairs that are in the collection of the Swiss National Museum in Zurich.
A few other fun finds include:
A pair of large candelabras by Gunnar Ander for Ystad Metall, Sweden c. 1950, in black painted metal with gilt brass details.
Danish Standing Lamp from the 1960s by Jo Hammerborg. Close up of the legs below.
This walnut chair covered in sheepskin was designed for Roasted & Relling in Norway in 1952.
Another beautiful Danish Standing lamp from the 1960s as well. Detail shot of the fine details below.
A set of iconic Verner Panton Cone chairs from 1958.
“Most people spend their lives living in dreary, beige conformity, mortally afraid of using colors. The main purpose of my work is to provoke people into using their imagination and make their surroundings more exciting.” -Verner Panton
A pair of limited production Dutch armchairs designed along with a sofa (all three pieces shown together below) and produced in 1964.
