It's a simple enough idea, but can lead to some great creativity. A little reason to bring people together, around an exhibition of decorated chairs. You can decorate whatever kind of chair you like in whatever style. You bring it into the centre of our little village of St Pierre sur Erve, and set it up in a tent specially provided for the purpose.
We started at 1.00 PM, and it went on till 6, and ended up with a chat over beers or kir in the bar. Very nice.
Last year was the first one, and this year being the second one, it's probably traditional by now. There's a few examples below, but really it's a social occasion.
Here's one with the theme of Africa
This is the wife's collection of miniature chairs from the museum; a "mini belles chaises" in fact
I just thought this head was dramatic
These chairs in different styles were laid out in a pattern but the wind blew them over. I think they look better this way :)
It looks comfortable, but is it art? Actually, it's the chair I took to sit on, with my reading material :)
