You’d seen them in swanky restaurants, resorts, equally swanky furniture shops etc.
If you’re anything like me, you’d drooled numerous times thinking about sitting on one and possibly owning it in your home
But do you know where the ghost chair came from?
“The Louis Ghost is a contemporary chair with references to 18th century France.
Also known as Rococo or Baroque, the french furniture style known as Louis XV, flourished during his reign of France from 1730 – 1775. The term ‘rococo’ means rock and shell – both of which were popular motifs during the time. Designs in this style are made almost entirely of curves with a romantic and sensuous look and feel. These key elements have been translated into modern chairs combining an old design with new materials.”
There seem to be some differences between numerous websites about which Louis it is (some say Louis XIV, some Louis XVI, me lost)…
My focus is on the reincarnation of the Ghost chair by genius Phillipe Starck (I’m soooooo gonna write a piece on him asap!) Before I do, read about him here.
I Loooove how the ghost chair can:
For myself, I have a very tiny guest room, so I maximized its size by putting a classic transparent one AND a beautiful mirror
And but of course, to entertain friends in my dining room:
The only problem with the ghost chair:
1. If you’re prone to having a sweaty butt
2. Micro mini skirts!
So far, no complaints from friends or visitors to the house
