Serious Furniture




Do you ever notice the way designers and architect types always go gaga over chairs? Well, in my experience they tend to anyway. Take the undeniably beautiful creation by Scott Garcia above. It is, in fact, probably one of the most wonderful chairs I’ve ever seen. Though I do have a little trouble taking it as seriously as the designer does in his descriptive blurb:


It’s not like I disagree with his philosophy- god love him, his heart’s in the right place- but come on, it’s only a chair! A pretty darn funky one, I admit, but why can’t it be just left at that? Why does it need a bloody narrative? And if it does then why can we not just be left figure it out for ourselves? Ah, maybe I’m just in one of those moods today. Anyway, I really do love Mr Garcia’s designs. Check out these concrete, yes I said concrete, tables. The second one is embedded with antique lace. How lovely!

The chair is lovely, the artist's description is slightly ridiculous, but you are absolutely hilarious! Your commentary made me laugh out loud... Still, I hope some of my chairs start sprouting a little greenery...

The chair is a stroke of genius and I love the concrete table with the lace. What a beautiful contrast.
