In one year I have switched out my dining chairs 3 times and finally settled on my set of 4 tripods. I suppose I'd give up my tripods for a set of Niels Moller teak dining chairs if they crossed my path.
Here is one of my 4 tripods:
Style attributed to Hans Olsen for Frem Rojle though mine are not marked so I don't know where they came from.
What sparked this post? Well I'll tell you! I dropped in to one of my favorite Salvation Army stores this afternoon. On my way out I spotted a bin that had just been rolled out from the back. "Self, I smell new inventory and I think I see a pointed leg sticking out"......could it be, could it be? Yes! A beautiful set of 6 Danish dining chairs. What a find.
Due to our current torrential down pour I can't bring them in to photograph but that's on my list for tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy this eye candy. Here are some of my favorites from Niels Moller and other greats...
