Josef Frank

February 5, 2007

Anthropologie has done it again. This season, they are dazzling me with this botancial beauty, the Josef Frank wingback. Mmmm.

Josef FrankI’m also a big fan of the Glass Menagerie glassware (they strangely remind me of Inke silhouettes) and this funky macrame-inspired jute doormat. It looks like something my mother would have owned back in the 70’s because she loved to macrame.

Josef FrankAlthough the chair is out of my league (it’s $2,500-), the price somewhat makes sense because Josef’s textiles are expensive off the bolt, I imagine half the expense of this chair is based on the fabric alone. I suggest purchasing the fabric alone from Svenskt Tenn (online, based in Sweden) and use it for smallish projects – cover a bench, seat, a fabric blind, etc. The linen shown on the chair above, Gr?na f?glar (does that mean green bird?), is $171- USD per meter. With tax and shipping to the states, one meter will cost you (gulp) around $338.00 USD. (Use this handy currency coverter as you’re shopping their site.) The prices shown are in Swedish Kroners. Maybe you can go in with a friend or two on a purchase and split the expense?
