Ghost chairs - not just for Halloween

Have you ever heard of "ghost chairs"?   No, it's not some Halloween goodie, they are reinvented classic Louis XV armchairs designed by Philippe Starck and they're extremely popular right now.  They call them Ghost Louis chairs because the varied lines and formal geometry of the original Louis XV chairs have been transformed into a single form of translucent or opaque black or white injection-molded polycarbonate.  Here's a photo of a Ghost Louis Chair.
And here's a picture of the original Louis XV chairs that I believe the ghost chairs were modeled after.
I was thinking that this type of chair (the ghost chair, not the original) would be good in the spare bedroom since the room is so small.   This chair can be put somewhere and be almost invisible to the eye.   I found one at stackchairsdepot.com and it is perfect.   Look at my Crystall Chair here.   I just love it!    Here are a couple of pictures of it in the room.  



Isn't it cool?   And think of the options for Halloween decorating.   Just kidding!  I'm still trying to decide what to do with the desk.   I want to paint it or something but I'm not sure what just yet, so it'll stay as it is for now.

I've been dragging out the fall decorations now that the weather has turned a little crisp.   I'll post some pictures later this week.   Happy Fall!!!
