fill 'er up

i have to admit that it was not love at first sight when i spotted the "industrial upholstery" chair by gilli kuchik of bakery design. the colors definitely caught my eye but something about how the legs attached to the seat drove me crazy. then i read the story behind the experimentation with the upholstery. gilli's research on upholstery showed that there has not been much innovation and decided to experiment with polyurethane foam. instead of using a mold to create a foam piece to cover with fabric, gilli uses the fabric as the actual mold. super clever. i like her style and can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
