Please, Have A Seat!
Isn’t this a cool chair? I found it through the fantastic Josh Spear blog, which I visit everyday. There are always cool new products to be discovered on this site. This chair is from the Brazilian design team of Fernando & Humberto Campana. I think it would be fun in an upscale playroom or even in an open loft-type living room. I also loved this one:
I love the sweeping stuffed gator tail coming out of the armrest. This just looks fun to plop into after a long day with a good book & a nice glass of wine. Although, this chair might be more of a design risk in a living room. Both of these unique seats are available through an amazing design site: Moss. There I discovered another Campana design I liked:
I have always loved the idea of taking random products and making them into something functional & beautiful. This chair, called the Favela, is made from the same products as the ad-hoc shelters on the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. (Speaking of, if you want a fantastic look at life in the Favelas, City of God is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I HIGHLY recommend it!) Look at this other Campana product:
While not the most comfortable looking chair, I find myself drawn to the brilliant color and the lines. A lot of effort went into the crafting of these products. I think that’s what inspires me most. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
