What is this forlorn feeling I feel? Oh yes, it is back-to-school time of year and yet I am no longer a student! I miss my school days...aha! The perfect remedy:
Yes, school on my blog. I shall be both student and teacher!
Let's start with one of my favorites,

Bergère chairs are upholstered French armchairs, with exposed legs. There is usually a loose, separate upholstered cushion on the seat. The elbow rests are typically padded.This is the standard shape of a bergère:

A bergère in action:
the Wegner Wishbone Chair
These chairs got the name Wishbone because of their split back slats, which mimic the shape of a wishbone. Originally designed by Danish furniture makers Carl Hansen & Son in the 1950s, this style is commonly replicated today and you can find non-Danish versions for a fraction of the price.

Wegner Wishbones look phenomenal in dining areas. I love this dining room space!
Bertoia wire chairs:
Named after modern furniture designer Harry Bertoia, these chairs are a mainstay in modern design.

And there you have it! Three new types of chairs.
Now, it should be noted:
"Bergère" is an overall term for a silhouette or shape of a certain kind of chair. In other words, Bergère is an umbrella term, in reference to a general shape of chair... Kind of similar to how the word "armchair" gives you a general idea of a TYPE of chair. Wegner Wishbone and Bertoia are both very specific styles of chairs, (with possible modifications of course, such as the bar stools or cushioned Bertoias.)
We'll have to do this again soon! Any requests on a specific topic you'd like to me to do a 101 Class about?
