Wary, Meyers & Aalto



Some awesomely beat up Alvar Aalto stools, as pictured in Linda & John Meyers' design book, Tossed & Found. I like to imagine that these stools came from an online liquidation auction of a Finnish reform school, because the probable real story--that the inveterate garage saling Meyerses bought them for $1 one Saturday morning, then spent the rest of the weekend artfully tagging them with vintage pocket knives--makes me feel really lazy.
