  • Welcome back! This week we turn our attention to our dining area. It is a simple setup that sits 5 to 6 adults comfortably. We have 6 different dining chairs from the mid century era. Half of them are pre-loved but their conditions are still pretty good. The solid ash round table was from a local shop. Casting a nice warm light above is our beloved Gubi Multi-Lite pendant. The gallery wall completes the look with some splashes of colour.
  • Below is a brief description of the dining chairs beginning with the top left corner in a clockwise direction : 1) Thonet No.14 Chair. Designed by Michael Thonet in 1859. This one that we have was produced in the 1970s according to the overseas seller in Germany. 2) Ahrend Result Chair. Designed by Friso Kramer & Wim Rietveld in 1959. Not much info on this from the Carousell seller except that he bought it from a reputable retro store in Singapore. Normally most of these vintage furniture would have some kind of original label or marking on them. But not this one, so we'll just have to depend on the many good reviews of the seller & trust his words. 3) Fanett T65 Chair Designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara in the 1950s. Got this from a pair of Swedish sisters who has a showroom in Isetan Scotts. 4) Ton No.14 Chair It's complicated here. Same designer as chair no.1 above but there are now a few companies in Central Europe producing their own version of the original design. Bought this new from above-mentioned reputable retro store. 5) FDB Mobler J46 Chair. Designed by Poul M. Volther in 1956. Got it from an overseas online shop. 6) Vitra The Standard Chair Designed by Jean Prouve in 1934. Shopee sale. Do you guys have a favourite? Let us know in the comments! We had fun assembling this dining set. It required some research, patience & most importantly, luck. Will it stay the same? We really don't know :P
  • It was love at first light. The Gubi Multi-Lite Pendant, as its name suggested, can be adjusted in different ways to direct the light upwards or downwards. It was designed by Louis Weisdorf in 1972.
  • Can you guess which famous painting inspired this one? . . . That's right, it's The Last Supper!! This is done by a very talented Swedish one-line-art painter called Peytil.
  • Our first CNY reunion dinner in this new home. Looking forward to many more in the future!
  • We love our dining area & hope you do too! See you in the next one!
