The Monster Chair For Moooi by Marcel Wanders




A stylish puffy quilted black synthetic leather chair available with or without a fabulous "monster face" sewn into the back. The chair, originally designed in 2010 for Moooi by designer Marcel Wanders is part of a family of seating from Moooi designed by Wanders and comes in two styles, one with a flared and rounded back:






Or in a simple squared off back (shown without the monster face):



Here you can see both styles in situ in the Andaz Hotel dining room:



The chairs have a steel frame, fire retardant synthetic leather upholstery and have been subjected to an abrasion test of >50.000 rubs.

The Monster chair was joined by the Monster barstools in two heights in 2011 and the Boutique Sofa, but neither appears to be available with the whimsical monster face.




On Wanders own site he shows a Monster Pillow (below), but I believe that was never produced:

If Dr. Seuss Were Your Decorator: Cartoon Furniture (Updated for 2012).





This original post has been updated to include new products as of March 2012.

When it comes to unusual furniture, my post about Judson Beaumont's cartoon styled furniture for kids always gets a lot of attention. But he's not the only one making whimsical furniture for children's rooms.



Introducing a company actually named "Cartoon Furniture" whose fun products will make you feel as though you are living in an animated world. The brainchild of Randall and Sharon Porter, they combined their experiences as an architectural lighting designer and make-up artist to form Cartoon Furniture®.

The line includes dressers, bookcases, headboards, wall mirrors, side tables and even bulletin boards and a clock. They use only the finest woods and materials to manufacture their whimsical line. All the pieces are painted over and over until the finish is perfect using only the best non-toxic, lead-free and child-safety paint and finishes. Top, bottom, back and sides are all painted, there is no exposed wood. Their drawers slide on Swiss Stainless Steel Slides with ball-bearings and each drawer includes a safety stop to prevent the drawer from falling out completely.



Their furniture is so animated in its design, I half expect them to get up and dance away! Take a look at some of their pieces.
