Louis Ghost

When I think of French interior design, the first item which comes to my mind is the Louis Ghost chair. This famous piece was designed by Philippe Starck in 2000 for Kartell, inspired by Louis XV's chairs. It is made of a high-quality transparent polycarbonate, it is durable, scratch resistant, which is a reason why restaurants use it often. I love it since I first saw it. I will definitely buy some one day for my dining-room  – to surround a large rustic wooden dining table. I love this kind of material mix-up. On the other hand I don’t really like the colorful or printed versions. The good thing about Starck’s designs is that they are highly functional and innovative as well, they are not l’art pour l’art. By the way, the whole idea of rethinking a baroque style furniture reminds me of the Grande Arche, the ultramodern "version" of Arc de Triomphe on the western end of the historical axis. What do you think?

Ignore the Christmas Market on the picture, it doesn't have anything to do with what I'm saying - to avoid confusion
