Form and function: two elements of design that when melded properly can transform a piece of furniture from a utilitarian prop taking up space in a room to an elegant addition to your decor.
With that in mind, I pose this question: Do you want to feel like an ant? If so, plant your butt in this chair:
This is the Bloom easy chair by Kenneth Cobonpue. Made of microfiber stitched onto a resin and steel base, this chair is designed to emulate a flower blossom.
The leafy effect is achieved by radiating the stitching out from the center of the seat. The result is the visual equivalent of a leaf, with the accompanying texture.
The Bloom chair comes in four colors: moss green, light green, yellow, and red.
And you’d better really like it. The chair is $2,500. That’s quite a bit of green to spend on a giant leaf to plop your fanny in.
At least you don’t have to water it . . .
