A New Leaf

As more traditional gals, the furniture retailer BoConcept is not one of our regular stops – but we were stopped in our tracks walking by the 18th street storefront for the new Ottawa Chair by Karim Rashid.

We’re totally enamored by this chair! Wouldn’t it be great upholstered in a print and seated behind a fabulous desk?

Rashid describes the design as a leaf-like form where the legs of a grouping of several chairs creates a feeling like a forest of trees. Watch more of Rashid discuss his Ottawa chair here:

Yet the Ottawa Chair is not the first of our botanical inspired seating love. Below are some additional leaf inspired favorites, first being the famous Ginkgo Side Chair by Claude Lalanne (to note: it sold at Christie’s for $37,500 in 2010!)
