doily chair

I just had to post Tara Murray’s doily chair. Free People is always attracted to the modernization of old crafts, and Tara’s work explores that concept. Here’s a bit about the chair from her website
The Doily Chair was an exploration in designing a new furniture piece utilizing an outdated object. The new composite linen doily has found its home supported on a wide walnut chair frame. The recontextualized doily provokes images of grannies and formal parlours of the past yet maintains its contemporary proportions and usage. The Doily Chair is a project from the thesis work on attachment and thus employs the six developed Design Tools to Encourage Emotional Attachment.
