Goodbye Grasshopper!



We took the grasshopper chair to the upholsterer last weekend.  




I was a little sad to see him go.  There's so much life and history behind that chair, it's almost as if he's a person.  Okay, maybe not a person, but definitely like a pet.  Maybe because it's called grasshopper, and  when I was younger I always tried to keep grasshoppers as pets.

Anyway, in a few short weeks he'll be back as good as new, well-groomed and sporting this awesome new fabric:

Maharam Steelcut Trio #533
Stay tuned!

And if you're interested, find info about the chair, and the original look we are going for, at the Knoll Museum website.
