WATCHING THE SHIPS ROLL IN

Posted on October 16, 2012 by admin

‘A contemporary and domestic interpretation of the deck chair’. I know some of you are against it, but I want summer back. As rain was pouring the other day, I started reading some design magazines and stumbled into this marvelous collection called The Bay. Made out of beech wood, this structure with cotton canvas mattress and cushions is called The Watching the ships roll in and truly is a domestic yet summerish interpretation of a deck chair. Parisian designer Marie Dessuant has realized this neat seat and stool as a personal interpretation of a seaside resort’s collective memory. Influenced by memories of salt crackling on the skin, and states of mind like the strange distance holidays, the chair is a simple and creative product. A daydream with an off season taste. Please note that Watching the ships roll in, is a limited edition so you better be ready and quick if you want to have it. I crave for it!
