The Coconut Chair

Over the weekend I went to see The Richard Avedon Kennedy Portraits exhibit the The Hunter Museum (a fantastic museum that my mid-sized city is so lucky to have). The pair of George Nelson Coconut Chairs in the lobby prompted this post. It is amazing that a chair this sleek can be so comfortable.

I love these. You can make the chair the main art of the living room! Minimalistic and cool!
