if you read our recent post about the scary flock of crows that might or might not have caused maison21 bodily harm last saturday, you'll understand why the above chair sent a shiver down m21's spine. creepy, yet kinda cool, no? the wingback chair covered in black feathers is entitled "portrait of george 1", 2007, by elyse hochstadt, and is available at the FIVEten studio in oakland, ca. ($7500.00).
maison21 discovered the FIVEten studio because he had a design magazine emergency today, having read all the new issues of the design mags he subscribes to- so off to the newsstand to purchase all the regional design magazines that he buys pretty much only when desperate, as they can be a bit hit or miss, editorially speaking (though he'd be MORE than happy to be published in any of them, thank you). he picked up a copy of california home + design, which he's not sure if he's read before, and it was pretty good, actually. he might have to subscribe!
here's some other cool things from FIVEten studio:
"pig bank", Harry Allen- Reality series, 100% Resin and Gold plated, ($220.00).
"4L Combo - Dining Table", by Robert Austin Gonzalez, Hand Rubbed lacquer,($10,500).
