I needed a counter-height barstool for the desk area in the kitchen. I love Harry Bertoia's wire chairs and barstools. He designed them in 1952, the same year our house was built, so I think they are totally appropriate. The only dilemma was price. I found reproductions in a range of prices. They all look identical. For some purchases I can understand why we would splurge for the licensed reproductions, especially wood furniture or anything upholstered, but metal? I just couldn't do it- plus we are trying to save our dimes for the upcoming bathroom reno. I took a gamble and ordered the one on the right. It should arrive this week and I'll let you know how it stands up. Stay tuned...
