The Arm Chair by Jamie Isenstein, an artist born in Portland, Oregon, and based in New York City, looks like something out of a 'Harry Potter' film. As though Professor Snape turned one of his students into a piece of furniture for disobeying an order, it features the arms and legs of a human being. Essentially, these limbs become essential parts of the iconic wingback chair. For instance, without the human legs, the front portion would simply fall to the ground.

In addition to the human body parts, the Arm Chair by Jamie Isenstein is made out of wood, metal, nylon, raw cotton, linen and hardware. Quirky and surreal, no one will want to sit in this seat. For all a person knows, it could be a trap.
