Orchid by Christian Flindt
About five years ago I bought my first orchid. It was a type of Cattleya with purple and pink striped leaves. It looked very exotic because there were tendrils from the flowers petals that twisted down an inch or two creating a sort of plant peyos. This was not a simple store-bought orchid but one I picked up at an orchid show. I became obsessed with caring for the orchid, However, the orchid died quickly. What did I learn from that experience. Don’t feel like you need to own something just because you appreciate it. I then went into painting orchids which I loved. I ended up doing a bunch of watercolors that were quite adequate and captured the beauty that I saw. I think that’s where I left my obsession.
But for those truly obsessed, I suggest possibly picking up the Orchid chair by Christian Flindt. I’ve recently come upon this and fell in love. It is made from a polished fiberglass and comes in three color combinations. I’ve show my favorite which is the gold on the back and black in front. The Orchid chair really touches the essence of the delicate nature of the flower. The only thing that I find at all troubling about this chair is its ability to collect stuff in the deep recesses of the chair leg directly behind the back. It seems that this leg is completely hollow and could easily trap a small pet.
