Red Egg

This chair is like a girl on the cover of MAXIM or that hunk on GQ. Sexy, gets you worked up, but in the end, totally useless because you know you can't have it. But, if you're a design freak like me, you'll appreciate the eye candy for what it's worth, and look hopefully to the future when knockoffs of it hit Pier One and West Elm. The chair is from Red Egg's Indochine collection, their newest line of cane and rattan furnishings inspired by 20s and 30s French and Vietnamese design. I'm sure I could contact Red Egg directly for pricing, but since their collection is sold at Neiman Marcus and Smith & Hawken, it's a good enough stop sign for me to simply step away from the merchandise because it must be well over a grand. But it's still fun to look at. When I see it, it actually inspires me to look at cane and rattan differently, in a more modern light. Maybe you already did and I'm just a bit behind. Seeing it perched atop a shag rug in a contemporary space makes me see the style in a bit more glamourous light, too. I wouldn't mix the rattan magazine holder with it though (shown in photo). I'd simply have ONE cane/rattan piece in the room since I don't like outstanding "focal point" pieces dotted all over the space trying to compete for attention. That's just me. I would love to see this chair in black lacquer, high gloss white, or cherry red. I suspect UK Designer, Kelly Hoppen, using it in her rooms with a creamy moroccan wedding blanket on the arm. So, what do you think of it, do you like it?
