I recently watched a webinar on chair construction and everything that goes into making a quality chair–very interesting to me but most likely pretty boring to you. So, that’s not what I’m going to talk about today.
Today I’m going to introduce you to some cheeky chairs–chairs that are definitely not serious, but seriously fun.
I feel that every room needs some kind of statement piece–the one item in the room that stands out, draws attention, is out of the ordinary, one of a kind, a piece de resistance, a “wow,” “OMG” kinda worthy.
These cheeky chairs do just that; some are sculptures themselves, some are sleek and contemporary, some resemble period pieces, some are iconic designs from a stable of incredible furniture designers.
And some, well, some you just have to see to believe. They are the smile-makers in the bunch, because even if you could never imagine yourself having one of these crazy creations in your home, they’ll definitely make you smile (or laugh). And that…that is the purpose of today’s post.
So…let’s look at some cheeky chairs, why don’t we.
Sculptural chairs are in and of themselves pieces of art. Functional and fabulous, many of these chairs were created by famed designers around the world.
French industrial designer and architect Jean Marie Massaud’s delicately engineered chair pays homage to Eero Saarinen’s iconic midcentury-modern TWA terminal at New York’s JFK airport. Perched atop a metallic frame, the birdlike molded plastic and upholstered leather body is all swooping lines and aerodynamic curves. How cool is that?
The circa 1960s Anel Lounge Chair gives off a space age vibe with its ring-shaped back.
A classic design by William Platner for Knoll, this iconic 1960s lounge chair is created by welding curved steel rods to circular and semi-circular frames, simultaneously serving as structure and ornament.
