Mademoiselle Rocking Chair


Upon entering my home through the front door it is easy to decipher that I am a minimalist. From my furnishings to decor, my mantra has always been less is more (I really didn't intend to rhyme).

The first sofa in my living room was exquisitely simple -- low to ground, white, clean lines. No over-stuffing. No scroll-detailed arms. Minimal. That sofa has now found it's home in another room, and is in desperate need of a pal.

I contemplated throwing in a plush arm chair, but I knew it would drive me crazy. The logical answer was a streamlined armless chair in a vibrant hue. But I scrapped that idea once I found Ilmari Tapiovaara's Mademoiselle Rocking Chair, designed in 1956.

We've featured a number of rocking chairs at Pure Contemporary, but the Mademoiselle's reversed-tapered  back and large rockers earned it the #1 spot on my list.
