These chairs were just fun to figure out. Taking from originals by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and an adaptation created by Charles Limbert, they were designed as cafe chairs for a tea room. I won’t say they’re the most comfortable in the world, but they’re really not bad, either. The paint is for two reasons, I’m using them outside, so that’s just better for the weather, but the original was also painted, so I’m not too far afield.
