The ‘Elephant Chair’ by Maximo Riera is a dual-faced sassy chair with an elephant on the back and seating in the front. The largest walking animal on earth can stay in your home safely with this seat.

The Elephant chair is the latest from the animal chair collection of this spanish designer, who’s crafted other similar chairs with a rhino, octopus and walrus. This sculptural seating is a representation of the high deity Ganesha, a God popularly worshiped in India.

The meticulous details on the Elephant Chair enhances its realistic portrayal, showing wrinkles and crevices on the animal’s trunk. The structure is carved from foam that’s compressed and framed with a steel skeleton in the interior. The Elephant Chair by Maximo Riera is not nearly as heavy as an actual elephant at 353 pounds.
