Crave Worthy: Alain Berteau Instant Classic Side Chair

I love the look of this Alain Berteau Instant Classic Side Chair, but I like the packaging even more. Featured in the May/June 2007 issue of Blueprint, this sassy seat arrives de-constructed and folded up into an impossibly flat box.

With just eight screws and a few minutes, you can transform the birch wood panel into a cute chair with a slightly cartoonish silhouette. The chair is available in an unfinished or clear-varnished version ($150) or in different different lacquered shades ($225). These chairs would be great as a set around a casual kitchen table, or just use one as a conversation piece in a living room or bedroom.

I don't like this look at all. It's ugly looking and I really don't think it would fit well with any decor, especially not mine.

I do like the idea, but much to pricey!

Too pricy for an uncomfortable looking chair.

so not exactly travel-worthy but they are fun if you need extra chairs for a party or something. I'd prefer something not so rigid ...they look small. Will my butt fit on that seat? lol

It looks cool, but not very comfortable.

When I was in New York visiting one of my best friends from college we walked into his house and there was a huge package waiting for us. It was one of these chairs in cherry red! They are really cool and it paired perfectly with his metal seafoam green coffee table.

Maybe for a real office environment or classroom...but not for my home.

That's great esp for small spaces. Practical and funky!

Very cool! I wish I had something like this back in college. With all the stuff I had to move into the dorms, I would have loved it if my chair could be packaged like this. Although this chair probably wouldn't be as comfortable as my office chair that I use.
