The remarkable Harp Chair by Danish designer Jorgen Hovelskov is a sculptural object that’s nevertheless comfortable to sit in. The chair’s "Harp" form was based on the bow section of Viking ships. The configuration of the flag halyard gives the design a powerful optical quality" (For more information, see 1000 Chairs, by Charlotte and Peter Fiell.)
Two Harp Chairs are now available at Arenskjold Antiques, one in birch, one ebonized. Price: $5,500 each.
