I have yet to figure out all the techniques of blogging, but I have noticed several people have found my blog by searching for information on the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost chairs. One in particular was searching for dining tables to go with the chairs, and since I just visited the Kartell store on Greene Street last week and picked up a catalog, I was already looking for an excuse to share some of the pictures.
I like the look of woods mixed with the contempary plastic chairs, like Kartell used for their cover shot, which was originally photographed by Francois Halard for the October 2005 issue of House & Garden.
The photo Kartell shows of their Victoria Ghost chair also shows how great the clear goes with wood.
Another Philippe Starck option that would look great at a kitchen island, or in a bathroom as pictured, is the Charles Ghost stool. It comes in the same assortment of colors as the Louis Ghost and Victoria Ghost, as well as three heights.
If you want to match the modern look of the chairs, you can use a table from Kartell, such as these, which are designed by Philippe Starck with Eugeni Quitllet.
I love these chairs because they are surprisingly versatile and can go with any decor. Visit Kartell’s website for even more options.
