My husband and I are undertaking a new project; a sizeable project. We’ve decided to build a house. When we moved to Toronto from New York, we imagined we’d have a slew of places from which to choose. We’d been living in <1000 square feet and imagined unlimited options in Toronto. Not so. We looked for over a year and finally decided to take the plunge and build.
We’re just starting the process. My husband is excited to toil over plans and I’m dreaming of chairs and sofas. I have a thing for chairs. For some reason I’ve always had a thing for chairs. But, I’ve been somewhat nomadic for my adult life and have never felt the urge or need to accumulate.
I still want to keep things simple, and maybe that’s why I fell in love with the loft chair from Bernhardt Design as soon as I saw it. It’s sleek and simple. I love the lines. With our daughter running around at home with crayons in hand, I also love that there’s no upholstery or fuss. When I found out this chair was designed by student, Shelly Shelly, as part of a sponsored studio course at Art Center College of Design, I fell for it even more.
