The Baby Ghost

I first sighted the lovely little piece that I call "the baby ghost chair" a couple of months ago, and I was instantly smitten. The real name of Kartell's child-sized chair, designed by Phillipe Starck, is the "Lou Lou Ghost", and it's available in lots of colors.
As with the full-sized Louis Ghost, the "Crystal" is still my favorite.

Using clear lucite in a room is a brilliant way to visually create a larger space. I like the way that the computer and fax/phone appear to be floating in the room. More on this topic in a later post.
I went to an amazing estate sale over the weekend that included a huge art collection, including an original Dali painting (which was gone by the time we got there). There were several very reasonably priced pieces we considered buying as an investment - small Howard and Roy Finster pieces - but we decided it wasn't the right time to spend the money. What we would have bought - had it not already sold - was a thick lucite side table.

P.S. I have been having mega trouble with blogger commenting. My attempts to publish comments were thwarted for about 12 hours yesterday, and I know that some of your comments weren't accepted due to some internal error. I also had trouble commenting on numerous other blogs yesterday. My most sincere apologies AGAIN, as this is the second time in a week that blogger has been misbehaving.

Those chairs are gorgeous! I think they'd look kind of cool around a dark wood dining table - maybe a fun contrast.

Sorry about the estate sale - one reason I hate estate sales is that I always feel competitive - like if I don't get there early enough, I'm missing out, aka "losing." Not pretty :)

I've been having probs w. blogger as well - so annoying.

Anyway - LOVE the ghost chair. Someday I will have a set of 12 for a dining room, ha ha! Sounds like even though you didn't get what you wanted at the sale, they had some pretty cool stuff! Have a great Tuesday!
