A chair hunter and loyal reader suggested this chair, Hans Wegner’s CH 44, as the “best” chair. Its gorgeous and it does let you avoid the frequent imperfections and added expense when the chair has cushions/upholstery.
Congrats to one of my favorite rappers, Curren$y, on achieving his self-described childhood dream of buying a Ferrari. I’m not a huge car guy but I love this photo.
