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