Human Nest Chair
The Human Nest Chair is a creation of designer Emily Pilloton. It is a compilation of thousands of scraps of fabric and textiles, woven and tied together onto a bamboo frame. The idea came about after the designer observed the way that birds build and maintain their nests and, like those natural nests, this chair can be replenished with new fabrics of your own to keep if fluffy and soft over time. The designer says that this makes it into a modern heirloom.
Since it was featured in the New York Times this past Sunday, the fact that only one chair has currently been sold is bound to change, despite the fact that the chair is a startling $1,800. Perhaps it would be best for someone who likes the shabby chic look. Or the ultra shabby chic look.
