Chair #354

—Designed by Eileen Gray

From the Cobra chair to the Snake chair! Eileen Gray, who died in 1976, was an Irish furniture designer and architect and a pioneer of the Modern Movement in architecture. In February of 2009, Gray's Snake Arm Chair was sold for an astounding $28,238,277 at Christie’s auction of Yves Saint Laurent et Pierre BergĂ© ’s collection of artifacts. What a snake charmer.
