GIVE IT: think pink!

i was right in the middle of my "monday makeover" post when this image popped into my inbox from design within reach. i had to stop press, so to speak, to tell all.

all these chairs are classics with a twist.

chair #1 - the eames aluminum "management" chair in spinneybeck leather. forged from affordable aluminum in the 1940s, the chair was originally created for use in a private residence. i must say it is the most comfortable office chair that i've ever used. if only i could have transported it with me when i changed advertising jobs....

chair #2 - i have always admired (from afar) marcel breuer's "wassily" chair, designed in 1925 and made of tubular steel. supposedly, the first of its kind. such beautiful lines.

rocker #3 - how cool for a baby girl's nursery! born out of a partnership between philippe starck and emeco in the 1990s + based on emeco's 1006 "navy" chair from the mid 1940s, the "heritage rocker" is a sleek white powder-coated aluminum beauty.

stool #4 - designed by eero saarinen in the mid 1950s, the "tulip" stool in now seen in spinneybeck leather. swivel-ly great design.

chair #5 - lastly, arne jacobsen's "swan" arm chair is fantastic. originally crafted for the sas royal hotel in copenhagen, i imagine myself curled up in it reading atomic ranch.

and now they are available in PINK!

but...there's a catch. only by bidding on ebay can you snag one of these limited-edition, fully licensed chairs. by bidding and hopefully winning, you will support a most worthy cause: the susan g. komen foundation.100% of the sales price will be donated in support of the fight against breast cancer.

help find a cure. think pink.
