I never would have imagined that the iconic Marilyn Monroe shot from the movie The Seven Year Itch would have ever inspired a piece of furniture -- until I stumbled upon the Marilyn lounge chair, of course. I wouldn't have made the correlation between the two if I hadn't read about the seat before seeing it.

Designed by Spanish architect Borja Abellan and his designer colleague Nacho Soler of Tada Studios, the Marilyn lounge chair features a minimalist aesthetic that is both clean and fresh, which mimics the white lines of Monroe's infamous dress.

The Marilyn lounge chair pays tribute to the memorable scene by laying flat at first and then rising up with a gentle curve when a backrest is needed. Simply stunning.
