We’re very happy to introduce our Design Assistant, Aryn. Aryn started with us here at Twelve Chairs this summer and we are so so lucky to have her. She is such a pleasure to work with. Even in such a short amount of time she has started to put her mark on Twelve Chairs offering countless insights, loads of expertise, and a fresh eye. If we could only use five words to describe Aryn, we would say she is gracious, thoughtful (in more ways than one), savvy, driven, and meticulous. Without further ado, we asked Aryn to answer some of our favorite interview questions in a very Twelve Chairs fashion.
Where do you currently reside?
Washington Square, Brookline
What are you up to these days?
My weekends are often spent hiking in the White Mountains. Right now, I’m on a quest to conquer all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4000-footers! I’m also thrilled to be back in New England after having lived elsewhere for years. This summer I’ve been savoring every moment — soaking up sunshine by the lakes and enjoying the ocean’s salty coastal breeze. After having studied art history for years, my passion for the arts runs deep. Whether exploring new exhibitions and artists or visiting galleries and museums, I like to keep an eye on what’s happening in contemporary art. Down the line, I’d also love to return to Europe (especially France) or plan a trip to the Pacific Northwest! Mostly, I’m honored to be joining the lovely Twelves Chairs team and very much look forward to new adventures in design!

What is your favorite chair?
This question is especially tough! There are so many different styles of chairs that I could only dream of one day having in my home. I adore mid-century modern design, especially the Danish icons Hans Wegner and Ib Kofod Larsen, as well as Børge Mogensen’s 1958 Spanish Chair. At the same time, I equally love Bauhaus architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1929 Barcelona Chair!
