mushroom. chair.

Bold, bulbous and dramatic. Words you don't usually use to describe a piece of furniture that's part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, I'd guess. But that's what the Mushroom Chair by Pierre Paulin is like. Although I will dispute the "bulbous" moniker as it actually looks anti-bulbous to me. If convex is to concave, then I'd say bulbous is to (made up word here) bulbom, so I'd call the Mushroom bulbom. But I won't dispute that it's an awesome piece, and better still comes in a vibrant colors you probably won't find at Ethan Allen. Cost is $2,295.
