|Mae West's Lips Sofa by Salvador Dali|
What it used to mean when celebrities ‘had their lips done.’
Ever since I did my post on Pedro Friedeberg’s hand chair, I’ve been thinking about other pieces of furniture inspired by the human body. What’s beautiful to some, is creepy to others. So, what do ya’ll think of these?
|Him and Her by Fabio Novembre |
I wonder if these have ever been met with a straight face.
They bring out the 10-year-old in me: the giggles.
|Human Chair by Tucker Robins|
Looks more like a monkey chair to me.
Maybe some of our ancestors evolved into chairs.
|Tongue in Cheek by Peter Harvey|
Clearly Mick Jagger was Harvey’s muse.
Eccentric, creepy, they seem to be reaching for something.
|Ruby Rocking Chair: Anatomic Rocking Chair by Pouyanm|
Does this come with its own clinical hospital gown?
|Leggy Blonde by Rupert Cavendish|
This piece of furniture had me at its name. Plus, it’s like the leg lamp redux. Who can forget this beauty from the classic Holiday flick, A Christmas Story?
But this takes the cake:
|CHAIRman Mao chair by Geralde Scarfe|
CHAIRman Mao eerily resembles Jabba the Hutt in this rendition. This may be as comfy as Peepaw’s Barcalounger, but lounging in the arms of Mr. Mao/Jabba just doesn’t strike me as relaxing.
What do you think?
