Chair Obsessions Part Four

Bring on the gold, lacquer, craftsmanship, and wood. These elements set the tone for these scene stealing chairs. The Eames side chair golden. Gold leaf, fiberglass, lacquered metal, design perfection. In the same vein, Hans Olsen chair in a lacquered teakwood with metallic cover. Both of these jewels of design, work well in multiples or as a single statement side chair. I want both of them. Rami Tareef created COD for Gaga & Design at imm Cologne 2013. The intricately woven synthetic sleeve is a beautiful juxtaposition to the rigid steel frame.  The colors are muted, but his design is successfully bold. STEEL chair by Reinier de jong is a simple chair that highlights its natural components. Color and texture results from the materials used to create what becomes STEEL chair. Similarly, the reclaimed teak rocker from sobusobu uses reclaimed and natural components to create a show stopping rocker. It is more subdued than gold and lacquered design, but just as attention worthy in any space.
