Not sure what this part by the window is called in english? Quite often, most houses in New Zealand are without them. I like it as it is nice to have flowers, plants, candles etc in the window. In our art deco house we do have window sills but they have not much space.
A few weeks ago I came over one of those chairs. Love it and it stays in my bedroom. I would love to have more of them and kind of like this dining suite. The popular Y-chair of 1950 is forever popular among design lovers. It was designed by Wegner (from Denmark) and produced by Carl Hansen. It is still available and now comes in new colors and you see it in most Scandinavian homes. Today the Y chair, or The Wishbone chair as it is called in English, is often to be seen in many of the world’s finest restaurants and hotels. Most of the Y-chairs are sold at the Danish market. The second largest market is Japan. While the Scandinavians usually choose the chair light wood the Japanese prefer darker woods like walnut and cherry wood. I really did like it in black. I now hope that the shop I found it in will get more of them so I can buy a set.
