I LOVE rocking chairs. This is such a great picture of Picasso in his studio and the Thonet chair peeking out of the back corner. This chair was created by Michael Thonet in 1870. Dali had one in his studio as well.

When I was growing up my mother had one of these amazing Thonet rocking chairs and loomed rug art hunk up on the wall above it. She gave it to me, and guess what I did? I sold it at a garage sale!? Therefore I am determined to find another one and pretend that it is the same one my mother gave to me.
