look at this shiny sculptural throne, er, chair from johnny swing. it’s made of stainless steel and coins – lots and lots of coins. 1500 half dollars and 7000 welds! it weighs 58 pounds and is contoured to fit the shape of the body comfortably.

don’t flip your lids when i tell you the price is $29,000. i know you’re not surprised! start saving immediately and when you’re finished, you can purchase it at vivre. while you save you can check out johnny’s other supercool designs right here.

    i love this! i’m thinking a coin printed fabric needs to be manufactured so the rest of us can have slipcovers!
