Now for something special - this 90 m2 flat located in Brno is full of Czech (Czecho-Slovakian respectively) mid century furniture and decorations.

There are wonderful Tubular Chairs & sofa, glass ceiling lamps, vintage parquet flooring and this extremely cool chest of drawers (which I already have at home) all together in combination with contemporary artwork hanging on walls forms very eclectic and interesting interior full of colours.

Design Icons - Hans Wegner´s Wishbone Chair


Famous "Wishbone" chair - originaly CH 24 - was introduced in 1950 by the Danish furniture company Carl Hansen & Son.
Shape comes from Chinese Quan Yi ceremonial seat that was simplified in the Danish modern style. When it was first introduced, however, its recognition was not overly positive and only a handful of retailers bought it for their showrooms. Now it is one of the most popular Hansen products which presents finest craftsmanship and comfort, aviable in wide selection of colors.

I sooo want one - perfect for my bedroom or dinning room.
