The Canvas Chair

Normally you should never touch fine artwork on the walls, but sitting is fine when you take a seat upon this cool new Canvas Chair by Japanese design studio YOY. It may seem to be a simple 2D painting of a Victorian-style armchair at first glance, but when you sit down into it, it becomes a 3D functional chair. This unique illusion is created by stretching an elasticized fabric across a sturdy wooden frame designed to be leaned up against a wall. Its $1,255 price may seem steep, but when you consider that you get both fine art, functional seating, and something interesting that makes any room a bit more decoratively eccentric, it's quite a bargain.
