Wow. Just wow. Isn’t it beautiful?
The Mademoiselle Chair is a Finnish design by Tapiovaara from the 1950s. (Thank you, bloesem, for the designer’s name!)
Look how lovely. It comes in pink! Well, “coral red”, technically.

They are really cute in “coral red”
What a modern chair; it’s gorgeous!
Oh, I have always loved all the chairs designed by Ilmari Tapiovaara. They represent the very nostalgic designs from a Finnish home with lots of memories. My sister has been looking for this vintage chair designed by him. I’d love to have one in my living room too. http://bit.ly/eBRgWX
Wow! I saw this chair featured next to Oh Joy’s wallpaper recently! Love it!
Love the pink! I wonder if they’re comfortable?
These are GORGEOUS!
I just found a couple chairs you would love at Goodwill…$5 each!
A cross between these chairs and the other modern shaker chairs … haven’t quite identified them yet (need to get a hold of the June 2010 Style at Home magazine, apparently they are featured)…
love, love, love. chairs are a major kryptonite for me. We have (…oh god this is embarrassing) 15 chairs, plus 3 office chairs on wheels, and a 6 seat dining set. And I wouldn’t hesitate to get this gorgeous one if I saw it for sale in a price range i could afford. Such lovely lines!
I love the leaning back and wide base. What a great chair!
Nicole, did you ever make a decision about your dining room set?
Well, the easy decision is to just stick with what we have. I would like to have these chairs instead though.
The style reminds me of folk art or being down on a farm. It’s a fun design.
Those are beautiful! I wonder if they are comfortable to sit in…
Those are gorgeous! I love them in pink…err…coral red.
Loving thse coral red chairs! Adorable.
good lord that takes me back. my grandparent’s huge maple dining set has ten of these chairs plus two captain’s chairs with arms. I remember wrestling with them as a kid and sliding off of them at dinner. The seats have indentations for your butt that make my sister and i giggle to this day.
Geez Louise! I’ve been trying to figure out the designer of this chair forever! Thanks for this post. I have one that my mom bought in Germany in 1962 and it was originally orange, but when we brought it back on the plane, one of the legs broke. So she had a bad repair done and they painted it manilla folder color, and now years later, I just had a new leg turned and painted the chair white myself–but I used natural paint, which was really gloppy, and after 5 or 6 coats, it still isn’t good. Yes, they are comfortable to sit in, but they are not good with kids around. If the weight is too much in front of the seat, the chair tips over on top of your kid-sized head.
