Since my trip to Brazil last fall,
I am in love with all things Brazilian!!! 

Especially furniture .....
& especially the work of designer

Tenreiro, a major force in modernist Brazilian furniture,
was born in Portugal & moved to Rio de Janeiro
in his 20's.

Influenced by the warm weather of Brazil, 
his pieces were light .....
often combining wicker or cane with 
indigenous Brazilian hardwoods.

I was delighted to see this DIVINE dinning set at
& am wondering if it will fit in my dinning room!!!

Another Fabulous Egg Chair ..... This Time in Brasilia!

"design universe" .....
including artist Tal R's
50 bespoke chairs 
at the MuBE (sculpture museum)
in Sao Paulo!!!
(see blog 9/20/12)

But, when I "met" these shiny yellow
molded plastic chairs .....
sitting side by side, in the lobby of the 
I thought they were the cleverest, 
most contemporary & fun version to date!!!

Don't you???
