These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

Chair made entirely out of Kennedy dollars.

I should mention they want $31,000 (USD) for it, and frankly, the welds could use some cleanup (see where the legs are joined?)

Funky chair! I wonder how it feels to sit in it?

It's likely not all that comfortable, due to the angle on the sides from the seat. If you fit in it arm/torso wise, your ass is likely too big for the chair, and vice versa. I think it flares at the sides too much for comfort.

Max would be adorable in it though, and it would feel cool against his warm fur.

If you sat in it naked you would get some very interesting impressions on your ...erm ....body....

looks awesome but thats one hell of alot of money and you are right about the welds, for that money it should atleast be cleaned up a little!

yeah, the obvious question (for me) was "but is it comfortable?" Lord knows I know people who could fix the welds... (though we'd likely try to barter them down on account of it, much as I hate bartering).

J's take? "The seat is fantastic (I agree it is poorly shaped for most humans) the feet appear to have been added on by a monkey. (monkeys are afraid of welding, very sad)"
