This spring, I had a customer who reached out to me wanting four Picasso chairs for her dining room. When I mentioned this to my wife, Heidi, she thought it sounded like a great idea. For years our dining room was filled with five Modigliani chairs. In fact, Heidi who works out of our house used to laugh and call these chairs her co-workers.
However, when Heidi and I got to talking about this commission, she pointed out that decorators are starting to use more patterns and vivid colors, and that the Picasso style chairs would make a nice contemporary update for our dining room.
So I went outside, fired up my saw and got to work. We now are the proud owners of five new Todd Fendos chairs LOL! Our dining room now features my interpretation of Picasso’s Femme Assise Dans chair, Woman in Blue chair, Femme au Jardin chair, Tete D’une Femme Lisant chair, and Femme au Beret Rouge chair.
I have to say the room’s transformation is striking and we love it. Do you own a Fendos chair? If you do, send me a picture of it in your home or office so we can highlight it on my blog.
Take care and enjoy all that life brings your way.
