Chairs with Artistic Designs, Is It a Chair or Is It Art?

Chairs have always been around humanity’s history. We see them in ancient Egyptian, Greek, Aztec, and Chinese cultures, yet even back then, chairs were pretty similar to today’s everyday options.

Designers are more and more interested in reinventing the chair, creating pieces that serve as both seating and works of art. Chairs are one of the most versatile furnishings you can own: since they are relatively compact, they can follow you from apartment to apartment or room to room.
