I chose classic white S-chairs, originally designed by Verner Panton in 1967, in a kid-sized knockoff version. Although I had always considered the original adult-size chairs very pleasing to the eye, I didn't expect them to be comfortable until I sat in one. Once I was sold on the comfort factor, they seemed perfect for the boys' art room. (In case you're wondering, the space was supposed to be a sunroom for adults, but the kiddos confiscated it.)
|Before...too small, too babyish|
The table had red and blue plastic caps on the legs, and it was cute enough with the original chairs, but it was time for something a little jazzier, a little more grown up...and a lot more suited to existing decor.
So out came my magical white, black, turquoise and orange duct tape and and a roll of patterned washi tape (Japanese-style masking tape, in case you are among the uninitiated), and after about an hour of cutting and wrapping, the old table was transformed.
