Wearing A Patch Work Egg Chair?

All Photos From: Squintlimited.




Um I know I'm shaking things up here for this isn't a garment or fashion accessory what is this mad girl doing? Please don't be alarmed or concerned I haven't been purchasing furniture to wear along the street (though wow what a true style statement that would be, huh?) I shall not be attempting to wear an egg chair as a dress. I do adore the old egg style chair its so full of character and so very iconic isn't it? However designer Lisa Whatmough may just possibly have me trying to pull off a chandelier as a skirt soon: If not an egg chair as a dress.

Surely I cannot be the only girl who wouldn't at least try to wear this elegant and vibrant chandelier as a hair piece or slightly chunky statement necklace? Yes it would feel extremely heavy swinging around your neck, comfortable no... and the odd poking of the neck would indeed be an issue ( I'd sure try my very hardest to ignore such a irritating fact. After all my tolerance level is set on high, tights for example: Ouch, hurting they're all twisted and often itchy. But I still adore them and wear various coloured, patterned ones on a daily basis with every outfit ).

Second thoughts (always such a big distraction them damn second thoughts) I'm confident I could combine an Lisa Whatmough patch work cushion into my outfit (now here comes the cunning part)...as a hat! Yep just attach a piece of ribbon and tie around your chin to keep 'cush-hat-ion' in place and stop it falling off your head. Why do I sense I may not be convincing both myself and you? I like to consider myself a bit of an 'eco warrior' I design sustainable garments and accessories and am very content to dig deep down in second hand charity boutiques...and well all these fabulous period furniture and antique chaise longues, egg chairs, mirrors and lighting's before your eyes, are unbelievably re-used vintage and retro fabrics.
Re- worked to bring an up beat, groovy vibe to any ones home sweet home (groovy? I watched Austin powers last night). Lisa Whatmough a former sculpture and painter has replaced the paint pallet with pretty patch works, creating a personal touch and one off pieces. Almost guaranteed to make your more mainstream IKEA furniture obsessed friends 'patch work green' with envy...And silly me, I just realised rather than wearing any of the above I could simply opt for the pain and style hassle free option of hanging this delightful circus inspired mirror up on my wall. Why on earth didn't I think of this earlier? Its not exactly rocket science,it is a Sunday I guess!

I love the chandelier and the chaize lounge (chaize or chaise ... hmm, to Ameircanise or Franglisise). Totally beats Ikea's offerings!

I love that egg chair. These look like Kenzo put out a fabric line with less consistency in the colors.

I love these! They're so whimsical, they don't take themselves too seriously at all.

Original egg chairs may be expensive but they truly stunning and can leave impression of opulence and luxury. Original chairs have certain distinguishing features. The base of the chair has 4-star design and is made from cast aluminum. Plastic gliders fitted at base to protect the floor. The frame is made of fiberglass. These chairs tilt & adjust according to the weight of the person.
