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:

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.
