Eames, but better

You can purchase these Eames nock-off chairs from Amazon for $173/pair, which is an awesomely inexpensive way to bring icon design into your home.  But the artist, Phillip Estlund, has taken them to the next level.  He cut up paper, collaged them, and then applied a coat of polyurethane.

These chairs are one of a kind and go for $3,600 a pop......and that is just crazy, but it got me thinking that this could be a really amazing DIY project.  Virtually anything would look good on this chair.  Sky's the limit! 

It reminded me a lot of this vintage school chair that had been coated with all canvas prints.
