7 Useful Ideas for Acrylic Ghost Chairs

Ghost chairs are made injecting polycarbonate into a mold. The incredible design has no junctions or seams; just a continuous shape. The most popular chairs are the Louis ghost chair which was first manufactured having no color, hence the name “ghost chair”. The style is easily recognizable thanks to their oval back and straight seat and legs. The ghost chair composition makes them extra durable and scratch resistant. These wonderful items can add a modern touch everywhere. To prove my point let’s take a look at some different settings for the ghost chairs.

Let’s start with the most common place for a chair; the living room. As we can see in this picture the  living room  is rather traditional with traditional elements. Wonderful wooden floors and vintage pieces stand side by side with the traditional fireplace setting the main tone in this design. Along with some traditional sitting pieces the ghost chair brings a fresh, modern air into the décor. The soulless piece fits perfectly among furniture and decorative full of history.

Probably where I would see these chair the most, would be a nice dining area. This wonderful dinning setting focuses on quality and simplicity, a setting where Philippe Stark’s Ghost chairs would look marvelous. The clean tulip table looks marvelous side by side with the transparent ghost chairs. The clean overall feel is complemented by the dark walls with the light bouncing from the mirrors into the entire setting. The room has already powerful elements so the chairs balance the ambiance with their transparent look.

In this design the ghost chair plays a key role and probably not any other chair would work.  The perfect clean design focuses on smoothness and a very little color variations. The soft tone of beige surrounds the entire room, taking over the carpet choice as well as for the furniture. Even the transparent plastic ghost chair has a small beige detail consisting in a small square pillow.  This bedroom wants to be undisturbed so you why the ghost chair is necessary.

Anther cool idea and a perfect place for a transparent ghost chair is a modern office.Filled with artificial light and modern white walls and computers, office spaces don’t need  “ heavy”  elements  because they would look tight and clustered. The ghost chairs are not regarded as an obstacle or a thing that takes precious space, and let me tell you something, in tight spaces this aspect matters a lot. Office spaces also lack style or personal touches, so the ghost chair is meant to be fashionable and add a little bit of dynamism.

Look at this traditional  kitchen and how well the ghost chair is integrated. Among wooden cabinets there is also glass and shiny metal finishes, things that can be perfectly pared with the transparent chair. The color palette chosen for this kitchen also helps; the gray shades are neutral and nothing leans towards a particular dominant element, which is a good thing if we look from the colorless perspective of the chair.

In a modern bathroom with a minimalist style   look-through chairs are a novelty element. Ghost chairs in this setting function as a decorative item.  The nonconformist bathroom calls for nonconformist decorative ideas, therefore ghost chairs were used because they don’t interrupt the main theme by standing out. Their sublime presence adds some original detail to the design, standing up but not showing off.

To completely catch your attention and to prove that the ghost chair is suitable for any kind of environment let’s take a look at this foyer/open living top setting. The magnificent spot features a combination of modern and elegant.{pictures found on 1,2,3,4,5,6,and 7}.
