Chair Designs are usually pretty boring and hold very few inspirations. But chairs can also be designed with creativity and can sometimes be weird and creative if designing with some flair.
A chair is a piece of furniture with a raised surface used to sit on, commonly for use by one person. Chairs are most often supported by four legs and have a back; however, a chair can have three legs or could have a different shape. A chair without a back or arm rests is a stool, or when raised up, a bar stool. A chair with arms is an armchair and with folding action and inclining footrest, a recliner. A permanently fixed chair in a train or theater is a seat or, in an airplane, airline seat; when riding, it is a saddle and bicycle saddle, and for an automobile, a car seat or infant car seat. With wheels it is a wheelchair and when hung from above, a swing.

Coat Check Chair
The Coat Check Chair design helps users find unexpected meaning in mundane objects. Recombining clothes hangers and a steel closet rod, it engages pedestrian artifacts to solve common problems: what to do with extra hangers clogging up a closet, and how to encourage people to hang up their clothes. By bringing the elements of the closet into the foreground of a person’s daily routine the Coat Check Chair offers a unique design and a gentle encouragement to stay neat. (Designer: Joey Zeledón)
Armchair pouf made with recovered sail fabric. The fabric becomes tense when the seat is used and the back acquires rigidity, adapting perfectly to the body, making it extremely comfortable. (Designer: DVELAS Reusail project)
167 | ComOn | Molteni
167 comes from the recovery of the defective bases of the table Arc of Foster. The solidity and immobility of the base made in cement is set against the leather seat, light and soft, leaning against the structure, almost floating. The skin recovered was grooved to change shape, the chair is created by 167 cuts like in a hug. The cement, raw, defective, industrial, evokes the charm of the urban and cemented ambient, the strong appeal of the areas 167 of the Italian cities, in fact. (Designer: Tandem)

Rocking On The Beach
“Have you ever experienced to dream that you are going to the beach? Breeze, the sound of waves and the sandy beach, these make our feeling so good. Rocking on the Beach helps you imagine the one of these experiences in your home. The plastic and pipe shape is designed for the best seashore sound, which is researched around the Netherlands seaside. The shape of chair with full of pipes gives a strong impression as an electronic circuit or urban city landscape.”  (Designers: Joon&Jung Designteller)
“Although intended for small apartments that demand functional furniture, I don’t see why we can’t include the Zip-Up Chair in mansions.”  (Designer: Kim In-bo)
“Ever look at macro photos of water splashes or super slow mo’ video of a droplet slamming into the surface sending ripples across a lake? There’s a moment in that 1/10 of a second when the impact creates a crater or sorts, as if you were small enough, it could neatly cup you. Inspired designer Michael Wendel created a 1/8th scale model called the Splash Lounge Chair, big enough for us to sit in.”  (Designer: Michael L. Wendel)
“It is time for man and nature to reunite!”  (Designer: Michel Bussien)
“The theory behind designing the Selfportrait Chair is very honest and simple. As an introvert, graduate student Ka-Lai Chan found it difficult to express her emotions lest her peers ridicule her. The stifled emotions grew like a nagging tumor and are seen as those odd blobs on this chair. Rarely do we come across an emotional side to a design accurately represented as this!”  (Designer: Ka-Lai Chan)
“Gravitational Illusion. A fantasy of optically excellent proportions. These chairs float between naturalistic and industrial on a bed of impossibility.”  (Designers: Christian Andrés Parra Sánchez, Juliana Andrea Mosquera.)
Light and sensational chair design. (Designer: Fabio Novembre)
A Chair With A Rug
“The chair is designed by Dutch design student, Sophie de Vocht, and made of 1,000 feet of yarn pulled through a tough metal wire mesh. The seat cover is made with using a designer’s hand-tufting technique. Crossing a carpet and a chair allows to use the warmth and the comfort of a carpet in a different way.”  (Designer: Sophie de Vocht)
The Octopus Chair
The artist wanted to be faithful to the animal’s physique and the natural majesty of its movements, therefore Maximo attended to each physical detail of the octopus in order to make the animal the unique protagonist of the whole piece.  (Designer: Maximo Riera)
“This chair is created by heating and pressing a seat-shaped former into a ball of polypropylene rope. The rope begins to liquify as it comes into contact with the heated former and, as it cools, it sets in the shape of a seat creating a contrast in form and texture to the remaining rope. No additional material has been added to make the seat – it is all made from melted rope.”  (Designer: Tom Price)
Beautiful Bloom Chair
“Made of deep soft folds of handmade microfibre fabric stitched into a steel base, the chair is available in Red, Moss Green, Light Green & Yellow. This lounge chair will make you feel like fairytale Thumbelina in a beautiful flower.”  (Designer: Kenneth Cobonpue)
Chair For Cafe
“The design satisfies both elements of functional and decorative design. The seats appears like a silhouette of a coffee mug, whose handle can be used as a hook for draping a jacket or hanging a bag.”  (Designer: Sunhan Kwon)
“As you might notice that these chairs look like ties. Have to say it’s clever idea. Also this collection consists of various variations start from office ties to fur ones.”  (Designer: Velichko Velikov)
