Cool products alert- Fascinating anatomy-inspired furniture and decor! (Part 1)

I always love designs and things that are well-made, beautiful and a little quirky. To me, it provides great visual stimulation and keep things interesting.

Let's take this wingback chair for example:

'Flow' wingback chair

This well-designed and stylish anatomy-inspired wingback chair was created by AK-LH, a Paris-based design company that specializes in 'dressing the inanimate objects of our daily lives to liven them up'. 'Flow' is part of AK-LH's 'Tante Vera' armchair collection and is currently presented at the gallery Think&More (108 rue Saint-Honore - 75001 Paris) and at 107 Rivoli inside the Louvre Museum. Other examples from the 'Tante Vera' armchair collection:

'Talk'

'Hands'

'Cut'

'Flow 2'

Personally, I love the 'Flow' wingback chair very much and will be glad to have it in my living room. I love it because it is a classic chair yet with a graphic modern twist. I am sure it will be a great conversation starter for my guests. However, I am sure these chairs are not for everyone, so I am wondering what is your take on them? Do you like them or loathe them? I would love to know.

  1. Oh my gosh these chairs are crazy!! How awesome!! Personally they are a little over-the-top for me- they are one of those things where I would totally admire them in someone else's home and think that person was just the coolest for being daring enough to use them, but I'd be way to chicken to try myself!
    btw those tables you showed me are gorgeous!!! And so nicely priced. Thank you!

  2. Hahaha...yeah, these chairs are crazy but they are definitely statement pieces! To be perfectly honest, the only chair I love is the first one because I love the color combinations and the cool graphic, while the rest, not so much especially, the 'Cut' chair. It is a little grotesque even for my slightly bizarre taste. :)

    I am glad you find my table suggestions useful. :)
