Style at Home
Ghost chairs have become ubiquitous in modern interior design since their creation by master designer Philippe Starck back in 2002. Inspired by the traditional Louis XVI armchair, Starck removed the wood and upholstery of the chair to create a barebones version in clear polycarbonate. His idea was eventually realized by Kartell.
While the original Louis Ghost Chair designed by Philippe Starck for Kartell will run you about $400 USD, there are plenty of alternative chairs that give you the same look at a lower (and sometimes higher) price!
The transparent furniture theme has since been improved upon by using acrylic (which won’t yellow over time), having the arms removed, turned into a stool, or even being used alongside with a cushion. One of my favorite ways to style this chair is with a white fur throw, which you can see in some of the inspiration picks below!
