Ghost Chairs by Philippe Starck – Not Scary at All!


Ghost chairs are an ideal piece of furniture if you want a stylish accessory for a small living space. They are transparent, allowing the light to flow through them and so you can add style without appearing to clutter your space. They are also stackable – so they fit the bill of two of my top tips for decorating small spaces! Designed by Philippe Starck, the Kartell Louis Ghost Chair works well in a number of situations. Whether you are looking for a contemporary dining chair, an accent chair, a chair to use to sit in front of your French style dresser or you want a piece that will stand out in a commercial setting, this chair is a versatile choice. Oh and I almost forgot, this chair is also suitable for outdoor use – phew!

These chairs are baroque in style, obviously reminiscent of the Louis XVI era, but Starck ‘s use of modern materials has made the Ghost chair a modern classic.  I love the options this chair presents from a design perspective. Used in an ultra cool, modern space the materials fit but the design itself makes a statement. Reverse the scenario and include the chair in a more traditional setting and the design may compliment the other pieces chosen with the materials making the statement. This piece can both compliment and contrast at the same time and it is not often we can say that about a piece of furniture.

Although they may appear delicate given the transparency of the materials used, they are quite sturdy. On a practical level these chairs are  shock, scratch and weather resistant. Ghost Chairs are available in a number of transparent colors and a couple of opaques. You will find more information about ghost chair prices here.
