CHAIRS AS ART

August 24, 2016

We have a joke at SUITE NY that some chairs aren’t meant for sitting. We are half serious though, as there are certain pieces in our collection that are as much art as they are a functional chairs. We love the drama of a stark hallway featuring an avant-garde chair, displayed on its own as one would a sculpture. Or the unexpectedness of a unique, modern chair in the corner of a traditional bedroom, elevating the space to both functional and conceptual. When done right, applying an art-like chair gives an interior a sense of curation, boldness, and sometimes even irreverence; a rare combination that every vanguard designer is aiming to achieve. Rated for residential use with surprisingly high weight capacities, these five chairs are the intersection between fine art sculpture and functional design.
