LEANNE: I want a set of eight of these around a table shaped like washboard abs.
BRIANA: Washboard abs table sold separately!
CAMILLE: Tee hee! Meh, I’m not a fan of furniture that’s giving me the finger.
FARIMA: I agree with Camille! I think it’s hard to match this chair with any design style.
But, I’m just dying to sit in it, just not necessarily in my own home. Maybe around Leanne’s abs table?
ABBI: Might be worth it to have one around, just for the joke factor. My friend just moved into a new rental house and the previous owners left a hand chair in one of the bathrooms. When first-time visitors head towards that room, she says, “Let me know if you need a hand in there.” [insert groan here]
LILI: There’s a real Beetlejuice vibe to these hand chairs that I can’t get past. Like on a dark and stormy night, if someone whispers the wrong word three times they’re going to come to life and trap their occupants.
CAMILLE: Yeah, that sounds about right. They also remind me a little too much of King Kong.
BRIANA: Ooh, good call! I’m still undecided, because while I think people like Kelly Wearstler handle this kind of sculptural statement well, and I love the hand chair in Emily Henderson’s office (Marianne, your pin reminded me of this)…
I’m worried I could never stop thinking about the hand chair on Arrested Development enough to take it seriously if I had one.
You’ve heard what we think, now we’re handing it over to you…
