Just in time for Halloween is Phillippe Starck’s Louis Ghost Armchair. The stack-able chair is made of injection-molded polycarbonate, which means it’s pretty indestructible. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use. Also available in the arm-less variety; the chairs are available through DWR in black, white and translucent for the sale price of $325.80.
How High the Moon Chair, designed by Shiro Kuramata, ‘reflects the ephemeral sensation of floating and release from gravity.’ The chair is made of nickel plated steel mesh. This combination produces a ‘high reflectance’ that makes the chair dissolve in light, ‘minimizing it’s impact on the surroundings’. At $9,975 a pop, it would certainly make my bank account feel lighter.
The Loope concept chair is made from a single piece of red oak covered in high density foam. Individual loops can be attached to extend seating. If you think the concept is intriguing, get this interesting tid-bit of info: the designer, Victor Aleman, is only 21 years old.

From Spring Design & Art comes the Top 10 Google Searches Pillow. Note those for 2006; both Paris and Orlando come before Hurricane Katrina and bankruptcy. Yeah, that sounds about right. Anyway, the 16" x 16" pillow signed and numbered pillows are being offered as limited editions of 250 and can be yours for $120 bucks. Or I’m thinking, pocket the money and make your own with iron-on transfer paper, stencils/paint, cross-stitch or… Continue Reading

A set of two will cost you about 100€ or about 138 U.S. I just have one question. Why not have interior and exterior corner pieces… Continue Reading
The provocative seating will set you back about 14 grand, but won’t it provoke some interesting conversation at your next cocktail party?
The Vitra Ravioli Chair, that is. A creation of architect Greg Lynn, the computer-based design started as a three dimensional square and then was kneaded this way and that to fashion all the necessary elements of a comfortable lounge chair. The stuffed dumpling comes in three colors including Melanzane, Sepia and Pomodoro. (That would be brown/aubergine, black/blue and red to the rest of us.) The price? Three thousand five hundred sixty.… Continue Reading

Have you seen Brodberg & Ridderstrale's Hood Chair? Made of plywood, steel and felt, the chair celebrates the just-toss-your-coat-anywhere idea. An intriguing object to be sure, and wouldn't kitty just love to snuggle up for a long nap in that hood?

So, two questions:
1. Cool idea or just goofy? and....
B. Is this DIY-able? (For 3,320 bucks–yeah, that’s the price… Continue Reading
