After it was first created in 1978 for the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara, the Proust armchair became a historic and iconic symbol of twentieth century furniture design. Just a couple of years ago, designer Alessandro Mendini helped design Proust Geometrica for Cappellini – an explosive and colorful version of the original. I think you either love it or hate it . . . what do you think?

it is a bit busy but there’s something about it. 🙂
I have one blog also and I just posted looks from Los Angeles, take a look:
It would take a great designer eye to furnish whole place with this bold piece. Love the colors!
I’m a sucker for riots o’ color, so I’m on the love side of this one!
Love it! Looks like Rainbow Brite’s throne! ❤❤❤
love it <3
Wow they are amazing! They will definitely light up a room.

I actually really like these! I’m not sure exactly what I would do with them, but they are certainly a beautiful conversation piece. Happy Monday!

an awesome chair statement piece for sure a little too busy for me
love this chair! such a statement piece, would look great in a totally white room!
I am not fond of it. Never felt wow’ed or anything by it. There’s too much going on in my opinion
$13000!!! Holy smokes. It’s an awesome chair – but come on.
These fun bright chairs would be so great to have in any home! It would be so easy to reupholster a chari with the same pattern if you so wished!
Funky fresh! Been using these chairs in a bunch of my interiors…I’ve yet to see them finished in such bold, bright patterns…how fun for summer!
Peace. Love. LOL!

I love looking at them as art, but I don’t know if I could have one in the house!
Oh yes, since I saw this chair for the first time I’ve been in love with them!
This chair is so awesome 🙂 love it
I’m loving this in the “it’s so ugly it’s fabulous” kind of way.
Great chairs!! A bit out of my budget though! 🙂
This is insanely beautiful…if only it could be sitting in my living room. Would be a pretty killer DIY project though, huh!?
omgosh! i totally want one!!!!
too bad its totally expensive.
but i love love love it!
love! it would definitely be a great accent to a room dominated with one or two neutral colors! 🙂
Love the pop art-looking colorful armchairs.
This is so rad !
Funny hair 😀
Love it but for 13 grand I’ll pass.
i LOVE it. but i hate the price tag. 13 grand for a freakin chair?? obviously not meant for people like me lol but i love the colors.
Love is an understatement. If I could marry an inanimate object this would be it!
I love it!! I’m all about color and all piled together, bring it on!
Love it and have added it to my “virtual” home. That’s about as close as I’ll ever get to having one!
I really love it! He did another version of this I recently saw in a museum. That version is awesome as well it has colourful dots all over it. The only downside really is the price. Great post!
I want this chair!
very intense but i love it if it didn’t cost 13,000 i’d buy one lol
Mendini designed the museum I worked at! It’s called the Groninger Museum, google it if you like the chair. 😉
Crazy but surprisingly awesome…
I like it… nice colorful chair….
Wow .. Great work and color combination are so good…
Beautiful.. colorful armchairs and perfect color combination.
Love this chair the moment I seen it and lovin it more. Am Going to make this a DIY project. Will paint the wooden frame all black. It’s better than paying $13,000.00!!
very nice !
No contest; love at first sight 🙂
Wow it looks great!
