Ever since I saw this Frances Elkins-style Loop Chair at the 2008 HGTV Green Home, I’ve been obsessed. It was the perfect match for that sunny bedroom, simultaneously timeless and fresh, and I couldn’t stop thinking about having one in the reading corner of my own bedroom.
Then, earlier this year, we reviewed Stephen Salny’s bio on Elkins, Frances Elkins Interior Design, which turned my obsession into…what’s more fierce than obsession? That.
I’ve been stalking these armchairs online ever since, and recently came across this outdoor version from tastemakers David Serrano and Robert Willson of Downtown, that’s just perfect for porch sitting.
It’s way out of my price range, but it’s so bright and poppy that it satisfies my chair fetish for one more day. In the meantime, I’ll keep dreaming that Target or Crate & Barrel will put “come up with an affordable version” on their to-do lists.
