Anna Wintour rules Vogue from a bistro chair
Here's a myth buster: In "The September Issue," R.J. Cutler's documentary about Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, it is revealed that she sits in a common metal bistro chair. (I'd expected a seat with Chanel-style diamond quilted leather.)
At least the British fashion queen, who also displays Clarice Cliff ceramics on her desk, has chosen a design classic for her throne. It's Xavier Pauchard's 1934 Chaise A, an indoor-outdoor chair still produced by the original manufacturer, Tolix, in Burgundy, France.
