How ridiculously cool is this? Yes, it’s an original 1950s vintage Harry Bertoia Wire children’s chair, complete with original yellow pad, and is just one of the many amazing pieces in the vintage-modern kids’ chair collection from Three Potato Four.
Northern Virginia-based Stu Eli and Janet Morales started their online shop and blog because of their love for collecting. Their passion is evident in the range of products they sell — a mix of vintage and modern goodies for the home including paper goods, prints, accessories and children’s toys. The pair came up with the great name for the store after teaching their 2 year old the rhyme ‘One Potato Two Potato’.
Other kids’ collectables on sale include Thonet’s famous Bentwood chairs, framed Children’s Record Guild album covers, and vintage gameboards which look great as artwork in the kids’ bedrooms or nursery. I also really like the Apple Coathangers by Dutch designer Pakhuis Oost, and for my car-loving toddler I can’t go past the Money Box Van.
But if it’s vintage you’re after, it’s best to get in quick. According to the Washington Post, who flagged up this happening online shop earlier this year, they sold more than sixty items in the first week of going live. So if you see something, don’t hang around as it might be gone next time you log on. And hands off those Bertoia Wire chairs!
