Cancon Chair
by Admin1 / May 9, 2004

Symbolic blanket covered chair.
Canadians will get this one. A well known Canadian symbol, the 350 year old Hudson's Bay Company Point blanket covers a relatively obscure modern chair called the Winnipeg Chair. "The slipcover, fabricated from the point blanket, bundles up a cherished and very valuable Winnipeg Chair evoking memories of cold evenings at the cabin". Cancon also stands for Canadian content, which is an integral part of the country's attempt at preserving it's cultural identity. Motherbrand's cabin collection also includes Axe Handle Utensils, Buddington Bear rug made with fabric, a modern Braided Rug, Coat Hang, Cork Tablecloth, Log Bowls and Memory Wallpaper. I for one would love to see the same concept, a collection of national cultural symbols as MoCo objects, applied to other countries. Via Reluct.
