The Arms Chair by Oleksandr Shestakovych is the sort of seat that's always ready to welcome you. This anthropomorphic seat has tiny hands attached to its arms that extend outstretched like a beloved little friend waiting for a hug.

Interior designers all over the world have been reinventing classic pieces to appeal to modern consumers. This recession-affected market is increasingly craving unusual pieces of furniture that double as art or statement pieces. These handy seats transform a traditional straight-back chair into a functional conversation piece.

The Arms Chair by Oleksandr Shestakovych is just the piece for homeowners with a sense of humor. The chair would also appeal to those with more conservative tastes, however, because its anthropomorphism isn't too over the top.
