Designer Creates Cacti-Inspired Chairs With Fibrous Spikes

Published 1 year ago

Designer Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers is known for her hand-made furniture designs that are created with sophisticated techniques blended with attention to detail and love. Her recent work “The Prickly Pair Chairs” has sparked a lot of interest among netizens. The Mexican designer’s cacti-inspired chairs are made of solid timber and plywood, curved, bended, and hand-carved with love.

They are inspired by the French period style of the time of Louis XV and are a set of Lady and Gentleman French oval models. If a lady wanted to sit on the Gentleman’s chair wearing attires of the 17th century, she wouldn’t be able to do so because of the armrest. This set of unique chairs can also be customized to your own specifications.
