This marble-inspired Louis XV goes to sparta armchair designed by Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman will have you sitting as tall as the Greek gods without any of the discomfort. That’s because it ingenious design actually uses a printed material rather than a rock-hard, cold-stone slab of rock.
Using 100% silk for the outer material of the chair, and applying it over a polyurethane foam structure, helped the designers create the seamless look of this chair, and the illusion that its really carved from stone.
The photographic image on the material is so convincing that you'll want to sit down just to satisfy your own curiosity. Why visit Greece when you could have your very own ancient piece of it in your home with the Louis XV goes to sparta chair?
