These Basic Furniture Pieces Do Not Look as Expensive as They Are

These basic furniture pieces take minimalism to a whole new level.

Created by the minimalist designer Donald Judd, these chairs are quite simple. The basic furniture is made up of a simple plywood and is designed with cubes and symmetry in mind. The chairs are supported with asymmetrical slants in the base that each go in different directions. While the chairs look like the result of an at-home construction project, they are in fact considered to be luxury items due to the big name of the designer attached to them.

What might be a surprise to some people is that these chairs are valued at over $1,800. The artist's ability to make a statement with only simple, clean lines and basic shapes shows his craftsmanship as well as his ability to sell his form of design.
