Max Lamb: Exercises in Seating

Ode to chairs

Dear chairs, 
You appear to be multiplying 
in our quiet brown house.

Some of you are familiar old friends, 
others of you have only just arrived 
and I haven’t quite got used to you yet. 
Some of you I can’t move, some of you 
make me constantly stub my toe. 
Others of you are light as air as I 
move you from one corner of the room 
to another. Some of you are quite 
uncomfortable, others surprisingly 
relaxing; some quiet and humble, 
others a little louder. Some of you 
are ugly, but all of you are beautiful. 
Some of you I dislike, yet none I 
would want to live without.

You come from nature, from the ground, 
trees and rocks, but you 
also speak of modern times.

You are all different, but you are 
all made in the same spirit, by the 
same hands, and can stand alone or 
live together. Each of you speaks 
of a time, a place and a moment 
in our lives.

With love, Gemma & Ivo
