Sleek, modern and completely unexpected, this unique conversation piece is both fun and functional. Contrasting wood and lacquer finishes give the chair an extra dimension that causes it to pop against a neutral backdrop, while an elevated seat makes the large ampersand practical for every day use. The design is most unexpected to say the least, but we can easily see this handmade chair livening up a simple living room or sitting area. No matter where you put it, this is one look that's going to draw attention.
