The Democracy Rules chair is definitely not the throne that Kanye West and Jay-Z envisioned when they put together their collaborative studio album. Yet it may actually have a more powerful impact than that musical endeavor since it essentially strips away the traditional look of a throne, leaving only its bared bones. By doing so, the Democracy Rules chair shows that the power really lies with a nation's people, not by its leaders.

Designed by Lina Saleem, the Democracy Rules chair does not just send a hopeful political message, it also is simply a well-designed piece of furniture. Perfect for the hipster looking to own his or her own "throne," this wireframe armchair would add a quirky detail to just about any home without compromising the existing decor.
