These chairs aren't made just for sitting down! They're pieces of art meant to delight the eyes, stretch the imagination, and occasionally tickle the fancy. From classic forms to groundbreaking creations from modern innovators, this newest entry in the 500 series presents a dazzling collection of contemporary chairs from today's leading furniture makers. Internationally recognized furniture designer Craig Nutt has selected the breathtaking examples--by such respected names as Sam Maloof (a walnut rocking chair), Garry Knox Bennett (two ladderback chairs), and Andrew Muggleton (his "Balustrade Chaise")--and they're breathtaking. Judy Kensley McKie contributes a cool "Monkey Chair" in walnut and bronze, with arms shaped like these playful animals. And Gord Peteran's wittily named "Electric Chair" comes in tubular steel...and features a lightbulb!
