Object 57 [of 66] – Norwegian chairs

 

These two round-backed, three-legged Norwegian chairs, like the kitchen table, are among the pieces of Norway the Childs returned with to the U.S. after Paul's work as a Cultural Attache in Oslo. The sturdy table and chairs occupied the center of the kitchen except when Julia's last three cooking shows were being taped. Julia and Paul typically ate their meals in the kitchen and even preferred serving up to six guests around the wooden table.
