Papa was a rolling stone

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t phoning this one in… I want to think that Hans Wegner’s Papa Bear Chair for AP Stolen is so recognizable that you reading this should be thinking…. C’MON! Stop being Lazy! Get it together! But, I remember the first time I saw Running With Scissors (Augusten Burroughs memoir) all I could think was, not only is there a Papa Bear chair in that AMAZING living room, but TWO!

A real vintage one (depending on the condition) can be found in the ballpark of $15,000. Thomas Hayes Gallery and Metro Retro Furniture have great examples. I’m not judging you but replica’s can be found at Modernica starting at $2900.

The Papa Bear chair is the embodiment of the (somewhat, overly and misused term) DANISH MODERN

 

 

Au Revoir Entourage…

With Entourage ending I felt a bit of relief knowing that I had another 26 mins to devote to reading instead of watching tv, but thanks to our new home’s built in cable and the dvr’s ability to record 2 shows at the same time I’ve really only just allowed more quality shows like “I didn’t know I was pregnant” and “hillbilly handfishing” to corrupt my brain…
Season 7 episode 3 “Dramady” had Scott buying some wine at an auction. The room was filled with tons of stuff.  The two things that jumped out for me were some Dan Johnson chairs (I’ll let you try to figure those out on your own) and the GE375 Hans Wegner Paddle chairs.  Thomas Hayes Gallery has a few different versions (finishes).  The pair are listed at $6400 and the single version is $3900. Red Modern Furniture had a pair, and I found that they have an armless set of four for $11,600.
Now back to watching a lady give birth in her pant leg ?!?!?!? Classy.
