Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Pixelated Chair

April 24, 2010

Of all the uses for awesome pixelated art… Ow, ow, OUCH! Source

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Water Bottles and Weapons

April 23, 2010

There’s no mention of the actual designer on the source page, but this lounge chair is made of hundreds of small water bottles. When I hear the term “Aqua Lounge Chair” I think of something a bit more…blissful. Now, when I hear “Throne of Weapons,” I’m pretty sure bliss isn’t anywhere in the picture. But […]

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Misc Mashup #2

April 22, 2010

Here are some more selections I saved from Oddee. This one doesn’t really qualify for the “uncomfortable” theme. Maybe some would find it uncomfortable to look at “ghost chairs,” but I actually think they are pretty wonderful. Made of paper strips, this fellow looks like the colorful cousin of Snuffleupagus. Supposedly, this also functions as […]

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Yuliyan Mikov

April 22, 2010

This Roots Chair by Yuliyan Mikov is perhaps more of a sculpture piece. I actually don’t have anything insightful or clever to say about it whatsoever. So just take a look… Source

Here are a few gems found on Oddee. This poor chair looks sickly, like it’s suffering a hideous case of lymphedema and needs physical therapy to get the swelling down…STAT! The “Evolution and Love” chair. No, I don’t get it either. Sometimes people take the “eco friendly” thing a bit too far. I’d venture to […]

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Tufted Pigs

April 21, 2010

These life sized pigs by Yvonne Fehling and Jennie Peiz are chairs…of sorts. I’m reminded of Helena Bonham Carter yelling “I need a pig here!” (to rest her feet on) in the new Alice in Wonderland film. Swanky swines in your home…yay or nay? Source

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: FUNature

April 20, 2010

This environmentally friendly design by Hugh Hayden takes its inspiration for the ball pits that children play in. The FUNature furniture line is made up of non-toxic, repurposed, low-density polyethylene (salvaged tennis balls), put together in a patent-pending tension matrix. The pieces are flexible and adjustable, adapting to the user’s body and position much like […]

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Alessandro Mendini

April 20, 2010

I have no idea what this chair may feel like to sit on, but I find it visually uncomfortable. Source

Uncomfortable Furniture Week: Antique Radiator Chair

April 20, 2010

Nicely constructed, though certainly not the most comfortable place to lounge around: Source

Uncomfortable Furniture Week

April 17, 2010

I’ve been collecting links of obscenely uncomfortable looking furniture, figuring I’d eventually do a theme week with them. That time has arrived! Next week will be Uncomfortable Furniture Week here on SheWalksSoftly. If you have any links/pictures of crazy furniture, please share! Or just sit back and enjoy…
