Red Yardstick Chair


What is it with these tricky chairs all of a sudden?

Is synchronicity in play?

Last week was Jeremy Alden's Pencil Chair (below).


Now comes artisan Dorothy Spencer with her Red Yardstick Chair (top and below).

"Colored yardsticks are extremely rare — these rulers are all naturally red, not painted — and in their previous lives were used as advertising giveaways for places like hardware stores, seed companies and dairy barns."

The handmade chair measures 14"L x 16"W x 36"H.

One difference between the two chairs, I suppose, is that Alden's is a one–off while Spencer's can be purchased.


The Yardstick chair is $400 here.
