I can see clearly now....ghost chairs

We delivered three of these last week. Our client is using them with a traditional drop leaf table in the kitchen. These ghost chairs work in so many spaces - transitional, useful and pretty - what more could you ask of a chair?

From Utility:
"The Louis Ghost Chair really is baroque revisited. Designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell the Louis Ghost Chair has now become something of a must have. Indeed, the Louis Ghost Chair has become one of the first design classics of the 21st century - and rightly so. As a Louis XV style armchair this is a design which adds elegance and irony to any interior or exterior.

The manufacture of Louis Ghost represents a daring example of injection moulded polycarbonate in a single mould and is highly durable - being shock, scratch and weather resistant - making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Following its launch in 2003 Louis Ghost has been a huge worldwide success for Kartell - so much so in fact that in 2008 Louis was joined by the baby Lou Lou Ghost Chair, a miniature Louis Ghost for children/decorative use.

Louis Ghost comes in a variety of colours. There are six clear colours (clear, smoke, yellow, orange (a pinky tone), green and blue) and two solid colours - black and white. Louis can also be be stacked up to six chairs high, making it ideal for storing."

  1. I just love the ghost chairs - still. I have been kicking myself for years for not bringing them home with me when I was living in France and moving all my stuff back to the U.S. They were a lot cheaper than they are now - so frustrating but I still love them!

  2. I totally loved this post! Couldn't resist the Ghost chair a few years ago and bought one for my bedroom.
