Philippe Starck Goes Chinoiserie


If you are a fan of Philippe Starck and his iconic Ghost Chair, here are two fabulous Chinoiserie versions. The first one is his new Mi Ming chair that combines the ghost chair's transparency with Ming Dynasty design. The bow-shaped back is based on a traditional Chinese horseshoe armchair from the Ming Period (1368-1644). Available with red or aluminum trim. The last chair is the traditional Ghost Chair in his Chinese Checkers design. I love both of these chairs.
