Eames dreams

They say when you're on to a good thing, stick to it. That's certainly long been my approach: my wardrobe full of black clothes, overflowing bookcases, a collection of crystal glasses that will outlive me, and a large collection of wall art are all testament to that.

Lately it's been chairs and this is a tricky one because I'm not the only one bringing them into the household (we share a passion for chairs, how romantic!) Recent acquisitions include two green velvet armchairs and a single, beautifully-shaped blonde timber chair. All three are 60s style and in need of repair.

On top of it all are my Eames dreams. I've had them for years and am not snobby in that I have to have the real thing, these ones from Matt Blatt will do, but which one(s)? I want all three.

Can you have too much of a good thing? How many chairs in a two person home are too many?
