Are you looking at an upholstered chair or just an outline of one? Designer Alessandra Baldereschi twists our minds by creating a polyester coated iron collection of indoor/outdoor chairs, sofa, table, and coffee table that have the shape of upholstered furniture but is far from it. Using lines typically seen on your favorite living room chair, he makes us believe we're looking at a plush, comfy chair when it's really all an illusion. Italian design company Skitch is selling the chairs, under the collection name FildeFer (Fil de Fer is French for iron wire), on their website.
