Like many designers, I love adding an authentic Eames, Bertoia or Thonet chair into my interior schemes for punch, but have you noticed that a lot of Mid Century Modern Classics are very hard (and cold) on the derriere? I specified eight Tolix chairs for a studio space once only to discover that my clients spent the entire winter sitting on folded blankets! So what to do about an uncomfy, chilly butt? Take a leaf out of the northern European rule book of design and drape the chair in an animal hide of course! I love the juxtaposition of the hard, man made edges of the furniture with the organic, textural feel of the hides. It immediately turns the chairs into an inviting place to snuggle up and get toasty.
