18. The Chair That Seems To Float On Air 

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a chair! This unique chair is somewhat bizarre. It’s incredibly modern with a metal frame and a white seat, and it almost doesn’t look like it would be stable. However, that’s what makes it so interesting: it seems to just float in the air. A person with very modern taste and who appreciates curves instead of sharp edges would love this piece of furniture. This unique chair could be a cool and inspired choice for a glass office somewhere in a city. One of these chairs would be enough to make a big statement. 


17. The Beautiful Lounge Chair 

Say hello to the Beautiful Lounge Chair by Kyle Buckner. And no, we aren’t just describing the chair; that’s its name. An American designer created it using 152 layers of pinewood and then carved and painted them in a stunning mahogany shade. Finally, the designer used a leather cushion, and voila. It is a beautiful lounge chair. Furthermore, it still retains the classic essence of a recliner while bringing in a whole new design element. Even if you didn’t find this chair exceptionally comfortable to lounge in, it could function solely as a sculpture in your home.

14. The Loopy Chair 

We can think of no better name for this chair than the Loopy Chair, and it certainly meets its name! They made it in 2011. This chair is the definition of bright and bold, with totally abstract lines and shapes. Imagine this chair placed below some stunning abstract art; it would complete the interior design perfectly. While quite a low chair, it still looks comfortable, with the larger loop acting as a backrest for you. This chair is a lot of fun and is very playful in its artistic design.

13. The Pipo Chair

Here is a very graceful curving wooden piece of furniture called the Pipo Chair. Designer Alejandro Estrado exquisitely crafted it, and you can get it from Piegatto. Wood is the sole material for this chair, and it is quite remarkable. The arms flare out, and the layers of the wood widen with light passing through the sides. That allows the light to highlight the natural contours of the piece. Estrado used 29 wooden strands cut from just two pieces of plywood. We love that this design is so artistic but very economical too.


12. The Unique Knot Stool

The Unique Knot Stool is available online right now. You’ll find it on Etsy, an incredible platform for finding distinctive and affordable furniture. Nautical elements flood the aesthetics. Strong Beechwood forms the chair, and the chair’s cushion uses a remarkable tying technique. The one-of-a-kind stool is a brilliant option for a pop of color or an extra seating spot in any room of your choice. Not only does it provide color but texture as well. This chair texture is the perfect way to make a room more inviting because they put so much thought into the design. 


11. The Quetzal Armchair 

Renowned French designer Marc Venot designed this unique chair. It shows that an armchair can be more than just an armchair. He has turned it into a visual piece and an interactive product that you can beautifully integrate into any space you desire. It has a magical feeling because the Quetzal bird taking off into the sky of South America was the inspiration. The bird’s feathers change colors with the mix of tones in this chair and how they design carefully laid them. Also, it looks very cozy for sitting while providing a beautiful warmth through the color choice.

The seat shell has a single upholstery lining that guarantees the highest seating comfort for the person lucky enough to get a spot in this chair.

If this is important to you, consider getting the Silk Chair and researching more about this chair designer.


7. The Nest Chair 

“If I’m a bird, you’re a bird.” This artist set out to create graphical chaos that still felt like a unified whole, and they did achieve that with the Nest Chair. There is a structure of a set and four stabilizing legs within the nest. The nest aesthetic is created with birch strips of different thicknesses and wound together to make the nest. The cushion is covered in a dusty chocolate brown to play off the pale tones of the birch. The designer intended an internal section of a nest lined with soft down for the eggs and chicks. 


6. The Shadow Chair 

It might take you a moment to realize what is happening with these chairs as it almost becomes an optical illusion! Here is the Shadow Chair, and it appears to be a two-legged seat defying the laws of gravity. It seems the designer used just wood, yet it actually has the steel to help hold it down securely. This unique designer chair is a playful piece of furniture and an engineer’s dream chair. The concept behind this chair is very clever, and someone with a good sense of humor would appreciate this type of furniture. 


5. The Bicycle Chair 

Where would you get inspiration for a chair like this? It was from looking around him and at his life for designer Jan Waterston. His inspiration came from cycling, to be exact. He said that a bicycle is something that the user can feel a seamless relationship with and then the road. He echoes this relationship in this design. It seamlessly flows into itself and resembles a modern bicycle design wrapped around the user. This piece of furniture looks seamless and would be an incredible dining room set. 


4. The Peacock L Chair 

Birds seem to be an everyday inspiration for chairs, and not just for the filling inside the cushion! This unique chair is the Peacock L Chair and represents the bird’s tail fanning in the courtship ritual in this breed of birds. Also, the design intends to represent frozen moments of beauty and happiness. It plays on the creation of paper cutting, as children do, to reveal the splendid shape of the fanned peacock tail. An acrylic composite transform using heat to make a unique design, and it requires a very delicate manipulation procedure. The Peacock L Chair captures the movement of the peacock’s tail fanning. Plus, it is almost throne-like in its appearance.

3. Another Peacock Chair

Hang on — we’re not done with the peacock chairs just yet! Another stunning peacock-inspired chair offers a modern take on the traditional wicker chair. Using different shades of material produces a peacock feather’s flowing colors. It also uses rounded feather shapes to create the woven forms and the actual structure of the chair. It is just as majestic as the bird, and it will stand out! This unique design also seems reminiscent of an egg chair which is so lovely to tuck yourself away into.

2. The Ribbon Chair 

According to the designer of the Ribbon Chair, a chair should be more than just its function; it should also be “friendly, fun and colorful.” The extreme contours of this chair allow the chair user to sit in various positions while still enjoying support from the structure. The ribbon form is known to be an exciting style, but this is a very innovative vision of the concept. This unique designer chair comes in a few different choices of the upholstery but still retains the incredible shape of this piece of furniture. 


1. The Drawing Chair 

The Drawing Chair looks like a sketch on a page when you’re bored in a meeting, making it fabulous. This unique designer chair shows off the idea of an abstraction meeting function. It also encourages people to sit upright, something we all should pay more attention to, by supporting the lower back with a light touch. It does also allow the user to sit more relaxed with this support. You can choose from three different colors: blue, red, and yellow, and they’re all slightly different in design, with a certain number of strokes used to create the final design.
