Casa Craving Challenge: Funky Chair, Functional Room

Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating challenge and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the look. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.)

I've totally been loving the cool, curvy lines of design collective sixixis' furniture. This British design collective transforms locally available unseasoned wood into steambent, curvaceous conversation pieces. My favorite piece of furniture right now is the the Lounge Daddy chair (approximately $2,900).

So in this Casa Craving Challenge, I'd like you to design a functional, cool living room around this chair. But there's one catch: The chair needs to be the life of the party, so surround it with mellower pieces so it can really show its stuff. What sofa, lighting, rugs, and accent pieces would you pair with this cool chair?

Tell me by creating Casa Cravings and tagging your Cravings with the phrase funky chair, and I'll feature the results next Wednesday, Sept. 26. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.

I used black laminate flooring for practicality. But I decided to do an accent wall with cork flooring as something interesting and as a way to bring an added natural element into the room.

My room is all about shapes: oval, circles, squares. All of which draw emphsis to the lines of the 'funky chair' . Casa Cravings, Funky Chair Items for for The Funky Chair Room The idea was a mainly monocromatic (shades of brown and black) room with slight touches of biege and the POP of the chair againist a living room that is practical and useful. . Everything in the room was setup so that the lightness and brightness of the chair would be a focal attraction. The only thing that I put in that had any real umph to it was the art work. I think artwork should be interesting and draw you towards it. .

I don't know if my original comment went through ...

For this funky chair, other contemporary yet calm items accompany. Deep grays create a cozy base. A wall fireplace from England adds some interest. Other fab items from across the pond keep the cool British tone going- a crest pillow, a squared chaise and a sleek coffee table, all from UK retailers. Unique lighting and a rug made of paper all gather around to say cheers to that FUNKY chair.

i love this chair! i'm thinking/seeing a vintage sixties throw back theme. very "down with love" (remember her amazing apartment in that movie?) with a white couch, white shag rug, and lots of white and gold accessories and throw pillows! this chair is shagadelic and that's what it needs to compliment it and let it shine!
