The Design Museum

My true destination when we got on that plane – the Design Museum – I just had to see this place – and when we got there I was not disappointed. The main thrust of the museum is, basically, ‘The History of the Chair’ – an object I have always been fascinated by.

Delighted when we arrived to find the second, yes, the second chair on display was one of our dining chairs from home!!

We went on to enjoy a veritable feast of Recycled Paper Chairs…

I could go on…but you really need to go yourself and just drink it all in…
