Cappellini Proust Armchair by Alessandro Mendini
Certainly not a chair for the conservatively decorated home this Cappellini Proust Armchair by Alessandro Mendini is a re-edition of the 1978 original and is an absolutely beautiful style statement. I can't take my off its endlessly flowing lines and the mesmerizing print that flows seamlessly over both frame and upholstery. Honestly it looks like something straight off the set of Alice in Wonderland.
The wooden frame is intricately carved and hand painted and is available in this light blue/grey/yellow color combination or black/green/red. Furniture might not be the most common gift idea for Christmas but this would be a great idea for a couple to give each other this holiday. $12,804
