Calla High Chair: The New Fleur Down In Fleurville

"All I need is a high chair..." The Greg looked around. But, sleek high chairs are scarce, there was none to be found. "It's JPMA! I know just what they'll do!" "Their mouths will stay quiet a minute or two, Then the Fleurs down in Fleurville will all cry Yoo Hoo!"

"That's a noise," grinned the Greg, "That I simply MUST hear!"
So he paused. And the Greg put his hand to his ear.
And he did hear a sound rising over the show.
It started in low. Then it started to grow.
The buzz was a-buzzing; seven-fifty was heard.
But pictures, you ask? No sirree, not a word.


Then, a leak from near Fleurville! The Greg popped his eyes!
Then he shook! What he saw was a shocking surprise!
Every Fleur down in Fleurville, the near and the far,
Was singing the praises of Monsieur Yves Behar!

He'd made them a high chair, the Calla, you know,
shaped just like a trumpet, put your lips on and blow.
Base: vintage Ikea. Tray: straight from the Nest.
Yet the Calla says Frenchies, not Swedies or Aussies, are best.

The Greg's interest was piqued: "Maybe Calla's phat! Def!"
But he'll hold off his judgment until ICFF.

Bravo...I don't even want to think about how long that must have taken.

[eh, it's mostly cut'n paste, but it was most of third quarter of the LA/Phoenix game Saturday. -ed.]


Greg, I love it most when you tap into your silly creative side. Now I'll always think of you when we read about Who-ville.

If you hear the applause from the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge, that's me.

Hi Greg

I heard back here in Oz that ICFF was featuring a chair with a very Nest-shaped tray...logged on anxiously to check the opposition...and fell off my chair laughing at your summary! Bloody brilliant - I DO love a seuss moment! And the tray thing is kinda flattering when you look at it that way....
