Sketch Chairs - Mommy's Chair by Lucy Merchant

Sketch Chairs – Mommy’s Chair by Lucy Merchant

Look closely. Very, very closely. These chairs appear to be a child’s drawing or a delibrate cartoon sketch on paper. But they are not. They are fully 3-D chairs i.e. real chairs anyone can sit on. Lucy Merchant is the designer behind Mommy’s Chair, a series of hand-bent recycled steel chairs with white seats which she says, represents “the spontaneity of a rough sketch.” The metal has been powder coated in primary colours, hues which suggest colouring pencils or crayons used by children. A variety of chair back styles are available. Each style could form a set but the chairs are best as a mixed group for visual impact especially with a matching table. The chairs would make a rather fun addition to a family room or a children’s playroom although they are rated for exterior use as well.
