Alex’s Starfish Chair

Maple, acrylic paints, fabric; 20"w x 20"d x 36"h

To go with his new desk (see Alexander’s Bedroom Furniture), Alex needed a chair. He liked his sister’s (see Heart Chairs), but the colors and decorative motifs in his room demanded a different look. Working with his mother and her interior designer Kathy Cragan, we traded drawings until we arrived at the design for this Starfish Chair. The shapes of the back and the two-color seat required a deft upholstering touch, but Ernest Hillier of Blindbuck Interiors did a beautiful job. Alex should have no excuse not to do his homework.
