Windsor Smith had done a lovely job of adding a little pizzazz to this style of chair..but generally I prefer black or white upholstery..

Out of these chairs, my favorites are the first and second one. The rest, not so much! It's quite fun to see what these designers come up with though!

I love Vicente Wolf's chair with the pink ribbons. Stunning.

Wou! So nice to discover your blog! You got me at this post! Totally in love with Jamie Drake's version! Haha, I look at it and think of a Pop Dostoievski. Huge Hug and lovely weekend!

Really like the first one (but wonder how comfortable would it feel on the skin, you know what I mean?), the second one is very pop and would be great somewhere in Miami, and I think Jonathan Adler's would fit great in kid's room (little confused but almost as if it's trying to say something?) Love the cause for all of them so A+ to all for that!

Love charity projects that bring out creativity and show variety of expression on the same theme.

Love Simon Doonan's.
