Storsele Chair from IKEA

I simply love IKEA. It’s because they have so many things to like and all the items seem to have been created just for you. It is impossible to stop by an IKEA store or to visit their web site and not find something that is so nice and good looking that you want to buy it on the spot. IKEA items are very affordable, but also very well designed. For example this Storsele Chair from IKEA is amazingly simple in design and still so attractive. It looks like somebody has just finished knitting it.

Storsele chair high  0130777 PE285159 S4This chair is hand made of rattan and all the pieces chosen to be put together are rounded and very well polished. The wood pieces are very nicely and gently curved so that the chair looks like being made of knitted thick thread. The effect is obtained by peeling the rattan and adding some clear lacquer. The feet are made of polyethylene and all the patterns are very carefully detailed. Thanks to the design and the material used, the chair is pretty lightweight, so you can move it easily around the house and also stack it when you do not use it. You can add some cushions or maybe a sheepskin for extra comfort. The chair is available in stores for $119.
