While walking around the Kips Bay Decorator Show House for what seemed like the hundredth time, I started noticing things in each room that I hadn't noticed before. Things in particular that kept catching my eye were "Funky Chairs." I noticed chairs that are different in shape, color, and finish - chairs that were more a piece of art than anything else. Some chairs I wouldn't want to sit in because it is far to nice to have one's behind in!
I found this chair in Bunny Williams' room at the show house. Bunny decorated this room with Brian McCarthy and David Kleinberg in honor of Albert Hadley, and they didn't disappoint! This chair, I especially liked because I can see it used in a kids room. Maybe an Alice in Wonderland theme?--I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!
This chair was in Jamie Drake's room and it's marvelous! It tricks your brain when you look at it, kind of like an optical illusion.
This is one of my favorite kids chair, I used it in my Sleeping Beauty room at the show house. It's a French inspired chair that is charming and perfect for a little princess. The embroidered initial of the girl's name adds the perfect touch!
David Scott's room was a masculine office. I love the way he accessorized his room and this chair added a nice pop of blue.
The next room was Raji Radhakrishnan's jawdropping interior. This stool was in the hallway, the legs are what caught my eye. The stool is whimsical and fairytale like, something that would be found in a Disney Princess room!
I don't think I have to talk about this next chair that I found in Raji's room, this is a work of art that makes a statement all on it's own.
This swing was used by Shawn Henderson's, it's a room that is a playground for grown-ups.
