Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?

I have a running joke with my mom that some of the chairs we've created over the years have (very much inadvertently, if you can believe it) taken on the personas of major fashion designers and artists.   Put them in a room together, and you have one heck of an A-list party...of chairs.

We even refer to them by their given names: "Have you seen Karl (Lagerfeld)?" "Last I saw him, he was in the closet with Betsey (Johnson)." Or, earlier: "You can sit on Jackson (Pollock). Gianni (Versace)'s seat is too pristine." Peculiar set up, to say the least.

So who's coming to dinner, you ask?

Karl Lagerfeld, clad in painted canvas upholstery:


Coco Chanel, sporting velvet tufting and a clean black ruffle:


Gianni and Donatella Versace, never without their Greek keys and ornamentation:




Betsey Johnson,  looking leggy in a sassy pink silk and leopard print:

John Galliano,  swashbuckling in studs, decked in pillaged gold and silk jewels:
And Jackson Pollock, looking electric and dripping liquid sunshine:



All chairs, pillows, and upholstery, photography and styling by (IN)DECOROUS TASTE.
