The Fiona Roberts Eyeball Chair Has All Eyes on You

The Fiona Roberts Eyeball Chair, named Scopohilia (meaning love of looking,) is as creepy as it is cool. Made from red velvet and hundred of plastic eyeballs, this chair is a wonderfully useful piece of art for your home.

The chair, at first glance, is another studded red velvet armchair. Later, however, you realize that this chair is much more than a regular armchair. Commenting on the fact that there is so little privacy in the modern world, the eyeball chair reminds us that we are always being watched. Roberts says, "the excessive 'gaze' haunts the flesh, generating the uncomfortable feeling of being exposed."

If you are looking for a piece of furniture that is also a conversation piece, this looks to be just what the doctor ordered.
