Inspired by kid's drawings, these chairs don't look too sturdy but they are real, functional chairs. Called The Mommy's Chair, these sketchy seats will cost you $564 a pop. They're designed by Lucy Merchant and believe it or not, they were the highlight of a recent exhibition in the UK.

Implications - The inspiration behind these seats came from child's two-dimensional drawing. This gives the chairs a playful, innocent, and whimsical element that's truly refreshing from other designer furniture pieces. To emulate the quirkiness of child-like drawings, the chairs were built from steel rods.

The fact that Lucy Merchant's Mommy's Chair is modeled after children's chairs is no easy feat. Her ability to make it functional and stay true to its look makes her creation one-of-a-kind.
