The London based design studio 20age rekindled this old chair’s flame. A vintage armchair stands at the base of this colourful reconstruction, proving once again that fresh design can reconstruct almost anything. We can consider this chair to be very lucky: once because it was saved with the help of a beautiful fabric and second because the strings that make up the back side of the armchair are considered to be lucky charms in Brazil. The strings are supposed to be tied to the wrist with three knots for good luck and for each knot, you should make a wish. Found on Design Milk, the lovely armchair, named Bahia Chair, is reupholstered in yellow velvet cord and yellow and green checked cotton and has 5,000 Brazilian ribbons attached to the back side. We can clearly see the Brazilian and English heritage of the designers, Emma Phelps and Mauricio Varlotta.
