    Default Philippe Starck (for Kartell) Louis Ghost Chairs

    So I'm in the process of redecorating and I was thinking of getting 4 new Louis Ghost Chairs by Kartell.

    What I love about the chair is not only would they look awesome in a small room area but the chairs are scratch resistant and suitable for most weather conditions. So when I get sick of them they can become outdoor chairs, lol! Sounds like a perfect plan to me.

    But I need to hear other opinions first before purchasing. So far I've showed them to a couple friends and they weren't impressed - which makes me feel all second guess-ey.

    Also, if any of you are familiar with this style, have you seen any authentic ones online to buy?

    Here are some pictures that I ran across online:
    - metropolitan magazine
    - noristudios

    -livingetc

    I think they're awesome! I love the idea that you can use them outside if you choose to. And if you get sick of seeing them plain, you can always get covers for them.

    I say go for them! They're so modern - I love them.

    ^^^ I agree, you can always buy different colored 'padding' for them to change the look around.

    I was actually going through room pictures today, and I came across a room that had one as a desk chair. I remember thinking that is was one of my favorite parts of the room. I have always liked how they look. And I really like how you can change the look of them with padding.

    Thanks guys! You were really helpful in my decision. Totally right. When I want to mix things up, I just have to throw on a different cushion. I am always redecorating, so that's a huge plus.

    Now where to find them. I searched around and found them online, never on sale. There's a couple on ebay, but I'm worried of getting stuck with knock-off copies.

    I don't like them "plain" but I love the idea of changing the whole look with cushions!

    Isn't that scene sooooo pretty I'm definitely set on the designer set. I don't really want a replica or designer inspired version, kwim?

    It's crazy how the reproductions and copies are going for $200+ on eBay.

    I love them! I know what you mean I get bored of decorations so easy so that would be a great way to change the feeling of a room with out changing the whole room. Great idea Jenn!

    I'm not a fan of clear furniture. I guess I don't like the idea of someone being able to see my squished butt through the back of the chair. And what about finger prints and smudges? That would be really annoying. I do like the idea of being able to change out the padding, but you can do that with a lot of things.

    I agree with BrS. I am not a fan of this.

    Even though it is designer, it is still clear plastic and may tend to have smudges easily.

    But if you like contemporary style furniture and have set your heart on it...go for it

    I love the contemporary look of these chairs. However, I do prefer them with the cushions.

    I definitely love the look! But BRS makes a good point. Two kids with clear plastic? Yikes! You should see what my son does to my ipod surfaces.....

    They are gorgeous if you have the right lifestyle! And no friends with super low cut jeans! :)

    do they come in other colors?

    I absolutely adore the Louis and Victoria Ghost Chairs. I think they add a very modern touch to a room while still maintaining a romantic and elegant feel. Also, if you're tight on space, these chairs do not add to the "weight" within a room.

    I would definitely get them! And with the different pads you can get for it, it will always match your decor. :)
