Ambassadors of Style

 After noticing the "Louis Ghost" chair yesterday on the website for Cooper-Hewitt People's Design Award, and then posting it here, I saw it again today in the Washington Post magazine (photo and information below from WP Magazine 9-25-2011).  There are many thoughtful designs shared on both the People's Design Award site and in the WP magazine's Ambassadors of Style article. I was thinking it would make an interesting bar seat, if it is made in such a size, but would be interesting in any variety of settings -- maybe in a room with a lot of mirrors, like the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles (okay, well maybe not exactly THAT  Hall of Mirrors, see photo below).  I wonder how comfortable it is, which made me think it would be ok for a bar seat:
