Steel and chrome chairs. Yum.
I am not really a modernist, not in the sort of all-or-nothing approach you think of when imagining LA people doing up their clean, white, angular (boring) spaces. You know the kind I am talking about.
But I do like a little metal in a space to smack down any kind of Rachel Ashwell vomitous "shabbiness" that is prone to rear its head when you like vintage and antique stuff, as I do. The whole topic came up a while back in the comments section responding to Nick Olsen's blog post about tubular steel (read it HERE), but I still have metal on the brain.
This current fave can be found HERE on Ebay. Recover it in white hair-on cow hide or maybe in some nubby cream fabric, or even in a fuschia velvet and you've got yourself a party.

What do you guys think of metal?
