Tanneke's favorite design pieces in her house

The armchair is a design of Warren Platner for Knoll international, this chair come from the 1950s and I have let the chair upholster and restore. I have bought this chair in a very bad condition at Ebay in Germany. The cushion Galeano is designed by Margo Selby. The fabric is developed on a handloom in her London studio, by English mills. Luxurious silk and lycra fibres are woven in a double cloth structure to create a 3-dimensional quality. Stick the Snail is my favourite Creatures from Donna Wilson. Cushion Galeano and Stick the Snail are available at Wannekes. The rug Victoria is from Nanimarquina.
What I (=Tanneke) remember of this chair is that he is especially made for a public space in Switzerland. I have bought this chair a several years ago also at Ebay in Germany. The bag is designed by one of my favourite dutch bag designers Hester van Eeghen. All these objects are my favourites in my home because they are good well-considered designs without doing concessions to form, material etc. But most of all: they are designed with love. Because of this the objects get a soul.
