Reminds me of something we would see in the Neverending Story.

Had me thinking about someones brain not quite the intended thought but at least I got close with a bosy part ha

Jimmy - my first thought was it looks like my pigeons' perfect poop - only in a different colour - but I probably should not have said that - shouldn't I????

I don't like those, but I like you. ;)

Brains, no? Not loving the aesthetics here...the fabric color choice might be throwing me though...

hmmm. first, i LOVE aqua creations, they are serioulsy one of my favorite companies. i LOVE them. at first, looking at this chair sort of puts me off, it's a negative first response, but the longer i contemplated its texture and shape, it grew on me. i'm a texture junkie and the lines began looking like ripples left in wet sand at the shore line. so, hmmm. oh and i agree with the zush, the fabric color may be throwing the mood of the chair off. imagine it in a warm color? or bright like an orange or red?

Actually, yes, it reminded me of brains and I was about to get snarky with that until i stopped myself.
But to be fair, I saw these chairs in different fabrics and they do look slightly better.

perhaps a different color...but, then again, I was never a fan of bean bag chairs, either...maybe if you try them out, they sort of grow on you..

Brighter colors might make them feel more fun- like play dough. Not digging the gray! I do like your blog and your "call as you see them attitude". I'm your newest follower.

Well I LOVE the shape and form, but seriously question this fabric selection. In a luxe fabric, rather than matte, they would take on a completely different look.

perhaps Crystal was the name of the designer, instead of an adjective?

Yes, it reminds me of brains. A bright color would not be so reminiscent of an organ. Provocative though!

Jimmy, this is a hysterical series. I'm pretty sure these were inspired by the mouse parts that my cat Fluffy leaves under my desk every chance he gets--just the intestines, folks. Fluffy eats some pretty gross things, but he draws the line at poop.
