Dancer Chair by Sabiha Mujtaba

Sometimes you see a chair and say: “Hey! Nice!” Which is what I thought when this Dancer Chair came up through Pinterest.

One of the drawbacks of a curating tool like pinterest is that the person who uses it, is not always using it as you should: They simply pin a photo from the net and you won’t have a clue as to where it comes from. Luckily Google now has a possibility to actually draw a photo in a photo search window and it comes up with a number of similar photos and that may help you to discover the provenance.

The caption at the photo learned me this chair was featured at the 14th Tenessee Master Woodworkers Show in Knoxville Tennessee, an exposition organized by the East Tenessee Woodworkers Guild.

Google pointed me to a post in Woodnews of Highland Woodworking. That article poited me to the site of Atlanta, GA, based Sabiha Mujtaba, Chrysalis Woodworks, which has an amazing number of chairs.

Strangely Google also pointed me to a Maverick Indian Export Site featuring the same chair and I must say I’m a bit confused now….

Update: See Sabiha’s comment below: The Indian export site took the photo of the chair. I’ve now deleted the link from this post as I don’t want to feature copycats here.
