Happiness is. . . a Philippe Starck chair

Spring is finally in the air here in Vancouver and here’s a happy chair to celebrate!

The Kartell Mademoiselle Armchair was designed by Philippe Starck, and features lovely, transparent legs set off by a fabric-covered expanded polyurethane body.

This green chair would be fabulous with a lovely round antique table and a large globe glass bowl filled with green apples and purple hydrangeas!

Where would it go in your space?

    Phillippe Starck is fearless and amazing.
    I love this chair especially in those wonderful florals. Perhaps I am embracing color after all, Maria! Maybe it was New Orleans.

    I love the animal print chair…I would use it in my office if it came with wheels, so cool.

    These colourful chairs are great!! The flowery fabric is so bright and cheerful — especially on a day like today when it’s gray and dreary and SNOWING.

    I would definitely put the leopard chair in my house. I’d use it as an accent chair, maybe in the hallway. I think just one would make a real statement!!

    Thanks for your nice comment about my virtual kitchen 🙂 I have a long way to go before I’ll be as good as Michelle at renderings!!

    Love them! I’d have four of the first ones – the floral – around a table in a sunny breakfast spot! Great post!

  • Haven and Home says:

    One day I really must get one of these chairs…

  • Rebecca Sherman says:

    I love every single one of these chairs.

  • I love all of them and would definately like to incorporate the animal print into my home. What a great way to start my Monday!

  • Brillante Home Decor says:

    They are absolutely fantastic like any other Kartell( they produce the most extraordinary and provocative objects teaming with the best designers.
    Kartell was founded in 1949 and the factory is a few Km. from Milan (I could not resist to say it).
    I actually sat on the flowers chairs, while in Milan, in a beautiful restaurant and it was like sitting in a garden!
    I would love to have them in every pattern.
    This Post cheered me up!!!

    I interviewed Larry Laslo (interior and home textile designer) once, and he said that every home needed at least one item in leopard print. Check! That’s always stuck with me… Kartell has such amazing furnishings!

  • DesignTies says:

    I might have to talk my client into something like this for her dining room table!

  • Ivy Lane says:

    really cool chairs… wondering if they are comfortable? looking for something to “pop” in my kitchen seating area as accent seating…..

  • Michelle says:

    Goldfish in Gastown has the flowered ones in their lounge…just lovely.

  • Unique Unique Design says:

    What fabulous chairs! I love the shape. I especially love the ones with the transparent legs!

  • ann mcguire says:

    Great find!!! I love how you can pop in color with these lively chairs. It’s like having bouquets of flowers spread around the room. I would love to see a set of the floral chairs in a pale gray room with dark flooring and one of the bright colors from the fabric on the windows.

  • Lauren says:

    Wow such fun chairs!!! Love the florals. (I haven’t seen these before!!!)

  • Kelly@Color Sizzle says:

    Such stylish chairs! I’d love to have any one of these in my studio, but I like the floral prints best!
