feast your eyes on this stunning azalea wood chair!

azalea_wood_chair 

some varieties of azalea plants have beautiful contoured branches, and are frequently used to keep orchids upright in their pots. their flowers and leaves (really the plants in general) are typically smaller than their rhododendron cousins, so by looking at the thickness of the branches, you can only imagine how large these shrubs must have been.

sculptural, commanding and truly extraordinary. 

they’re already sold out at wisteria, but hopefully they’ll be able to procure just a few more…

    stunningly rustic, but i am a little fearful that if i sat there it would come to life and swallow me whole.

    and thanks for adding me to your blogroll good buddy!

    Looks awesome, kind of Lord of the Ringsish.

  5. Jackal Says:

    That is incredible.

  6. the scholar Says:

    my pleasure sosser pal. i suppose it does look a tad formidable!

  7. the scholar Says:

    hi geekalerts,

    yeppers, i think it is LOTRish too — good call!

  8. the scholar Says:

    hi jackal,

    to quote meat loaf, you took the words right out of my mouth.

    thanks for the comment! 🙂

  9. Lady Banana Says:

    Stunning, but I wonder would it be comfortable to sit on??

  10. the scholar Says:

    hi lady,

    thanks for the comment! you have a good point. the dimensions are 22″w x21″d x37″h, so it seems to be a generous size.

    i suppose it would be similar to sitting on a log in the forest? hmmm…

  11. E Says:

    It looks more like art than an actual piece of usable furniture, it doesnt look very comfy at all. =/

  12. the scholar Says:

    hi e,

    thanks for the visit!

    i do see your point. i am picturing this at a writing desk or in a place in the home where long conversations are not going to be had, so it might work in those applications comfort-wise. i suppose putting a big cushion on the seat will take away from the pleasing aesthetics too… but i suppose also that it isn’t the seat so much as it is the pitch of the chair back…hmmm…

    ai feel this is the nicest piece of creativity I have seen in a good long while. I would like to have some way of contacting this obviously very gifted artist personally for professional reasons!

  14. the scholar Says:

    hi marty,

    since wisteria doesn’t list an artist name for this piece, i think you may have to dig pretty deep in order to figure out who it is…

    thanks for the visit!
