Modern Kids Chair + Modern High Chair + Modern Toddler Chair

Before you start questioning my knack for keeping up with the latest styles and trends, you'll need to re-think your ideas on tie-dye. While tie-dye used to conjure up images of brightly colored bursts on white tees (like the kind you made at the after-school program in elementary school) and is generally linked to hippie attire and reserved for those still stuck in the 60's and 70's (in both mindset and style), tie-dye as of late has gotten a modern make-over. Using an edgier or more wearable color palette, as well as differing patterns and shapes, modern day tie-dye is now more chic and stylish than tacky and dated. Whether it's as a water-color like print on a fluid tank, or as a unique and trendy way to add interest and texture to a hot pair of jeans or leggings, there's no denying that tie-dye is popping up everywhere ... and it's staying! The new, made-over tie-dye designs are youthful, versatile and totally fashionable and soon, over-sized rainbow tie-dye shirts will just be a thing of fashion-faux-pas nightmares.

All I wanna do is ... sink right into that seat. Doshi Levien's Paper Planes line of reading chairs are designed to help you do just that -- they're contemporary like the bulk of their esteemed furniture projects, and their asymmetrical shape was actually crafted specifically for comfort, making the chair as sophisticatedly practical as dad's leather LA-Z-BOY, just more smooth and sleek and effortlessly less burly. And this chair can actually recline in more ways than one. It was actually paper folding that fueled the creation of this swanky lounger. Furniture design may have been pushed against the grain in the conception of this piece of art, but upon further inspection, the lines and angles of the Paper Planes chairs seem to flow together in a way that that makes sound, geometric sense. Upon even closer inspection, you'll notice that some chairs actually shimmer with Swarovsky crystals that trace the graph paper-like grooves along the chair's many planes -- talk about baller. Unwind and relish in the creativity of the planet's edgiest reading chair while really indulging yourself by sitting on upholstery laced with the world's most famous crystals. We'd all probably be reading a bit more if we had a reading chair like one of Levien's Paper Planes. To afford a piece, however, I might just have to take your money.
