The other day I visited a really cute European style shopping center called Lafayette Village. My friend and I had fun going in and out of the unique shops. I found it interesting that were was a shop solely dedicated to spices and another solely dedicated to olive oil! Although the spice shop completely overwhelmed me, I couldn’t resist sampling the oils at the olive oil shop. They let you fill up little cups with the oil and sample them with bread!! And, they had every flavor combination you could think of! I loved the mandarin orange oil, but ended up purchasing one that I know I’ll use every day.
Towards, the end of our trip we stopped in a fine jewelry shop. I took one step in and fell in love with something! It wasn’t a bauble that caught my eye…no, it was much better than that. It was this chair!!!
The chair is made of SEAT BELTS! Yes, I said seat belts! This clever design is from Phillips Collection, a furniture company that really thinks outside the box. Now, I was thinking this chair is more of a piece of art and not a real option for seating. How wrong I was! It is totally comfortable! I actually didn’t want to get up, it was THAT comfortable. While I admired that chair, I secretly made a wish that a super modern client gets dropped in my lap! I want to use this chair in a design sooo bad! Fingers crossed.
