Morning morning folks! Today I thought I’d top off the week with a short and sweet design classic post on Eero Aarinan’s Bubble Chair. Designed in 1968, this acrylic bubble hangs suspended by a chain from the ceiling, and is pretty ruddy modern/bonkers if you ask me – I can’t actually decide if I like them or not… The authentic chappies are manufactured by Adelta, and have cushions in a range of colours and fabrics.
I have tried very hard this morning to find decent interior design schemes featuring these bad boys but have come up at a bit of a loss. I’m very selective about what I post up on this blog as I have to admit I’m quite fussy about what I do and do not like, and there are lots of space-age grotesque schemes out there that simply do not cut the mustard!
But here are a few I’ve found that I do approve of – hope you like.
This next one is of Kelly Hoppen’s home and is my fave of the bunch.
She also produces her own version of the chair:

And this Living etc. cover story had my jaw on the floor when I saw it for the first time:
So what do you reckon?? Do they look like they should be in a sci fi flick, or would one look right at home in your living room…?
