Nan's Chair

"Using secondhand tea cloths and aprons, Life is Suite has created a sofa with a narrative. Pictures, homilies, poems and recipes tell a story of a Nan's life, evoking happy memories tinged with nostalgia. As a chair for modern users there are pockets for remote controls, and other sofa paraphernalia. The sofa has been created by Stuart Parker and Paul Green for Life is Suite."

Found here, along with other re-worked discarded objects.

I have now been and had a look at all the others and there is only one or two others in the whole gallery that I did not think were hideous.

I agree, some are plain weird, this is the best one!

That's awesome - kind of like an inspiration board in couch form! Eclectic and fun, slightly weird.. perfect!
