Object of Desire: Model Six

Monday, November 13, 2006

This site is devoted to real people with real budgets of both time and money, but occasionally we will feature an object that is more than likely out of reach — an object of desire, if you will. These are things for which we'd bring our lunch to work for every day for a year. Our inaugural object of desire is the Covey Model Six stool. At more than $300 each, it's hard to rationalize purchasing these stunners (hence the $13 Ikea Oddvar stools that lived with me in the West Village for the last three years). But there's just something about the Model Six: its delicate legs that look like some kind of over-sized paper clip, the elegant yet industrial profile, the vaguely retro wooden seat. The Model Six is also in the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection, so at least my personal obsession has been validated by a major art institution.
