Communist chairs

1950's desk or dining chair: £280

So called because the man I buy these chairs from calls them Communist chairs as he can only find them in old East Germany. They were standard issue in the old GDR state and are classic in their sturdy design and minimalist look.

The chair has a sprung seat and a beech frame and is upholstered in Designers Guild 100% linen.

Other than that, I've not much to report I'm afraid. I'm still feeling a bit under the weather and have spent most of the weekend watching Homeland, potting seedlings and moodily staring out of the window at the freezing drizzle. I took the picture above from my desk this morning, and it perfectly sums up how I feel about this so called British spring time - gloomy!
