Chair #356

—Designer unknown

No doubt that some cool Italian in a striped shirt designed this. Imagine this chair perched in a hand carved gondola—shiny and black as the night—and gliding through the secret canals of Venice? This beautifully painted and parcel gilt Venetian Gondolier’s Chair sold for a mere $1,500 at a Christie’s NYC auction on September of 2009. That's amore!
