Take a Seat! The Chairs of Halfland

The fabulous film critic Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting (how's that for a Perfect Perfect Perfect name?!) had a wonderful essay last week on the importance of chairs, yes, chairs, in filmic storytelling. It's another example of Tony's thoughtful attention to important details of film today that I found inspiring.

When considering how I did in the chair department with Halfland, I have to say, pretty good! Here's a round-up of my choices: As always, thanks for watching.
Rana's damask, friendly easy chair in the cottage is a wine warm softie place to sit by the warmth of the fire and sew a bit. Is it alive? Or just almost alive?

For cottage guests, there is always the charitable chair table, half chair and half table. A real crowd pleaser.

On the porch, a wisteria vine has grown into a comfy spot on which to weave during the summer moments of Rana's days. Half living vine, half furniture, check and check.

The Writing Mouse, Quire's, smaller house has a couple of seats as well; one in which to contemplate the day's events by his tiny fire, the other to work at writing down his wisdoms gleaned from the roots living around him.


  1. Shelley I just knew if I came visiting I would find enchantment here! How wonderful to do a post just on chairs. One can find inspiration even in the most humble of things...
    hugs to you!

    1. Thanks so much, Ulla! How the heck are you?!
