Yesterday’s post about Galeria Miguel Alzueta was about just some of the amazing pieces the gallery carries and some of the spaces they have curated. Today is simply an encore of their work but more in the form of expositions. I think this discipline would be one of the most rewarding “jobs”. To curate a display, gallery or museum would be a fantastic task and Galeria Miguel Alzueta does a superb job. They organize these pieces in a way that a viewer may experience them as both art and furniture. I have always loved the more minimal approach to spaces like these.
Have you ever seen this many JEAN PROUVÉ pieces in one place? Galerie Miquel Alzueta has a stunning gallery full of amazing artists. JEAN PROUVÉ, CHARLOTTE PERRIAND, LE CORBUSIER, MATHIEU MATÉGOT are just a few designers that are present here. This set of images are from the projects section. This home has some very sought after high end pieces that most of us would kill for. I love the patina and age on some of the pieces. The white floors and walls give the interiors a gallery feel that let the pieces speak.
A friend gave me this old weathered Horsnaes teak chair that was in pretty bad shape. So, here is my Danish teak chair restoration. This is my first attempt at doing something like this but hopefully I can share some tips with you that may help with your restoration.
As you can see the chair was in really bad shape. It look as though it had been sitting outside and the cushions were covered in cat hair. A funny thing to note is that the back was on backwards.
Interior stylist Martina Lucatelli has a wonderful eye with a fantastic and original way to choreograph objects and interiors. I think it would be fun to take on the task of a group of objects and an interior space. How cool would it be to work with a bunch of different photographers as well. In many aspects it would be like putting together window displays.

Meet my new girlfriend Ester, I couldn’t resist those sculpted walnut curves. When I first saw the Ester chair by Porada, I instantly fell in love. The chair looks so elegant and comfortable, reminds me a little of the Pretzel Chair by George Nelson or the Cherner arm chair. Porada also makes some really nice shelving wall units and sideboards. You can tell from the pictures that these are quality pieces using very nice materials. Still, I can’t get over my sweet sweet Ester.
I don’t quite remember how I came upon the work of Bahar Ghaemi because it was lost in my bookmarks. Her furniture designs are quite nice. I appreciate her exploration of materials and how they do or don’t work together. I really like the Half Japanese Stool, it gives you a sense of priorities, the most important placement being, in the bowl.
