Katie and I are meeting in Seattle this weekend for a quick getaway and blogging caucus. We’ve rented a little apartment with a view, and we are going to work on our plans, vision, and hopes for Red House West. Apart from the blog, we have a few specific tasks in mind, including the compulsory clothing shopping that has to happen anytime an Alaskan goes to Seattle, eating great food, and looking for treasures in thrift stores.
I also have one very specific mission that I’m hoping to accomplish: test driving/sitting the Panton S chair.
I’ve been waffling about this chair for ages. I love everything about the way they look and I think they would go a long way in helping me to achieve the eclectic mix of styles that I crave. My house is laden with old things, and I need the zesty punch of a new era to lighten things up, give the space a sense of humor, and turn the dowdiness into WOWdiness (boom! that just happened).
I’ve never sat in one, (or seen one in person) and I haven’t pulled the trigger for fear that they are uncomfortable, or that they feel like flimsy lawn furniture. So I’ll be scouring the city for the elusive Panton S, and I’ll give you a full report here soon.
In the meantime, look forward to some spectacular Good Scores! on Friday. Next week we’ll post about our Very Important High Powered Blogger Conference, and I’m certain that in the coming weeks we will be imbued with a sense of passion and purpose–can you feel it already? Who knows, I might even be blogging my brains out from my new Panton S chairs.
Any thoughts on places we can’t afford to miss in Seattle? Thrift stores you love? As always, thanks for reading and supporting Red House West!
