Streets Chairs by Bade Stageberg Cox

Such a great idea.  

"Street Seats is a furniture project developed by Bade Stageberg Cox for the Pier 94 Coffee Bar at The Armory Show. The 50 chairs, found abandoned on the streets of New York, were repaired and given a new life with a coat of taxi cab yellow paint. Like the city’s residents, the chairs are an eclectic mix, migrating throughout the fair during its five-day run. The bottom of each chair is stamped and documented with the date and location it was recovered.Chairs are available for purchase." 

I have about a dozen chairs squirreled away from my chair painting history. I am inspired to dig those out!
