Covet: Chevalier-Masson

Chevalier-Masson is a collaborative effort between Anne Masson and Eric Chevalier, creating everything from socks, lovely scarves, and chairs. There is a sense of youthful whimsy in much of their work. They have designed a hollow braid rope with two mobile hooks inside that can be slid to differing points along the length of the rope; my inner girl scout loves this.

But it is the chairs that I find to be truly wonderful. Salvaged chairs are treated to a cats-cradle of wound yarn around the seat. I love that they are using reclaimed chairs and yarn, two of my favorite things, to make one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture. When you can enhance the beauty of an object, and give it a renewed, longer life, it is time well spent. It is as if a spider had exhausted herself for your comfort.
