Mystery Furniture

I mentioned over the weekend that I spotted something special at an auction, and was hoping for a bargain.  Sadly, it seems, other people were too.  The chairs went for quadruple my commission bid. Pffft! 

They were a set of 4 Hans Olsen for Frem Rojle Dining Chairs, like so:

They were missing their table.

What do you think of this set?

I’m usually all for painting wood, and have no objections to bright colours.  I find however, that the above yellow creation pushes me to my limit.  I can’t quite decide if I love or hate it.  Although it certainly looks sunny. Image via midcenturymodernist

If you can’t go on living without a set of these chairs, there are some on eBay here at the moment.  The set at the auction was identical, and sold for a lot more than the current £33.00 bid.  Image via eBay listing.

Oh, I DO love those chairs, but I'd change the color. The yellow is not a pretty yellow, at least in my opinion. The chairs are so beautiful and simple that I'd definitely go more understated with them. Nice find!!!
