500 chairs:celebrating traditional & innovative designs

These chairs aren't made just for sitting down - they're pieces of art meant to delight the eyes, stretch the imagination and occasionally tickle the fancy! From classic forms to groundbreaking creations from modern innovators, this new entry in this series presents a dazzling collection of contemporary chairs from today's leading furniture makers. Internationally recognised furniture designer Craig Nutt has selected the breathtaking examples - by such respected names as Garry Knox Bennett (two ladder-back chairs) and Andrew Muggleton (his "Balustrade Chaise"). Judy Kensley McKie contributes a cool "Monkey Chair" in walnut and bronze and Gord Peteran's "Electric Chair" comes in tubular steel...and features a light-bulb!
