Andrea Mihalik’s chairs caught my eye as I was wandering around the Architectural Digest Home Design Show the other day — I mean, of course they did, look at them! — but once I saw that her company’s name was Wild Chairy, I was in love. (Good design and a good pun? That’s an unbeatable combo in my book.)

The punchy colors and arresting upholstery live up to the “wild” moniker, but the vintage pieces Mihalik salvages are great canvases because they keep it all grounded. The dynamic between elegance and edginess, and traditional and contemporary is what makes the chairs so interesting. Do yourself a favor and check out the impressive Before and After shots on the Wild Chairy site. Just be forewarned that it may inspire you to rescue cast-off chairs from the curb once you start seeing their potential.
