David Byrne Chairs

This was from Byrne's exhibit two years ago. We thought of sharing them to you because as they say, "they're too good not to share."

In 2006, an exhibit featured a group of Byrne’s imaginative sketches embroidered onto upholstery fabric and unique chair designs. Byrne conceives working pieces of furniture from unconventional materials, transforming the everyday chair into something surprising and inventive.
