Cool Idea: Mona Chair

There's nothing sexy about folding chairs. Spare seating is almost inherently an eyesore, relegated to dark closets and dusty garages, sleeping with monsters under your bed. So, when I saw a folding chair that doubles as art — iconic art — I took notice. Korean designer Kwang Hoo Lee's Mona Chair is designed to hang on the wall when not in use, mimicking the Mona Lisa in an ornate frame. When it's time to party, the face of the "painting" serves as a seat and the frame becomes the legs and backrest of the chair. I think there's something sacred about da Vinci's masterpiece, and I'd almost feel sacrilegious sitting on it. But I like the idea, and would certainly buy one if a range of prints — or even customization — were offered. What do you think?

Love the concept, would love to see it in a Monet (gold frame, of course).

Unique. But, I would not use the Mona Lisa to sit on. Maybe an old landscape or city scene would be more appropriate.

I love it! I went to see the Mona Lisa and was thoroughly disappointed, so I'd kind of enjoy sitting on it. :-)

If it was really a picture to hang I would so buy it, but anything else. I do not think it would work.

I'm with you - I love the concept of this chair, but I could not sit on the Mona Lisa.
