If someone knows where the last 4 months disappeared, please let us know. Somewhere in between shipping loads of bentwood orders, we seem to have lost track of time. Last time we spoke it was the tail end of summer. Now we're smack bang in the middle of winter, filled with glasses of Merlot and open log fires... and then BAM... a great customer of ours in Tasmania sent us this jaw dropping image of a recent event they setup in this amazing marquee with our Bon Uno S bentwood chairs. A picture really does speak a thousand words.
One of Sydney's true gems, The Arthouse Hotel is a building like no other and completely unique. A match made in heaven for our bentwood chairs. If only those walls could talk...
We're super excited to introduce 2 new chairs to the Bon lineup. Meet Capri and Tiamo. We carry both of these European timber dining chairs in stock in a stunning dark grey wash. Perfectly classic, beautifully modern and well suited to any interior. Our Capri sold out in a record time due to some large commercial orders, but you can pre-order today for late January delivery. Tiamo just arrived yesterday and is ready to ship now. Remember that our last day for shipping in 2014 is Friday 19th December. All orders received after that date will be shipped Jan 12th onwards.
An avid Bon Bentwood lover and customer of ours, sent us in this picture of a restaurant which was closed at the time, in Double Bay, Sydney. The striking thing for us about this picture is just how timeless bentwood chairs are whether they are for home or in a café, restaurant or bar. Whether the interior is modern or classic, the Bon Uno just seems to compliment the space beautifully.
Despite the warm, humid days, autumn has begun. Spring and autumn, the 2 seasons centred on change, are also the two seasons that seem to inspire people to refresh, renew and change. Often that change is focussed on the home which means people climbing into garages and attics to clean out and reorganise all sort of things. We were helping a friend on the weekend and while rediscovering the back of their very old and dusty garage, we found these two beautiful, original bentwood chairs. After more than 130yrs, original bentwoods are still the most popular chair designs of all time.
