Chair #17

—offered by Mitchell Gold

I have no idea how this cute little chair got it's name—but what kind of a name is Astrid anyway? It's lovely—in a British sort of way—but unfortunately it reminds me of the word aphid. And it's just a couple of vowels shy of the word asteroid. Oh my... focus... Back to the name Astrid... There is in fact, a Princess Astrid of Norway, who is the second daughter of King Olav V, and was once married to a commoner—an Olympic medalist and sailor. Princess Astrid and the sailor. That's as good as fairy tales get these days, n'est pas? Do you think Princess Astrid owns a pair of these chairs?
