Designer Spotlight: Jessica Carnevale

What better way to brighten the great outdoors before the bleak winter months that with a colorful chair? Designer Jessica Carnevale has created these chairs inspired by fashion and clothing. With its simple silhouette, these chairs' colorful and unique interior ropes pop. So what exactly is it made out of you ask...

These chairs are made with latex, bungee, and rope for their exuberant colors and elasticity. She built them herself, and if you review the third photo you can see the one of the design phases these chairs underwent. They are quite incredible considering she hand-stretches and places each of the ropes into place.

They are available at abchome.com for a limited time, or you can dabble on her design studio's site to see what other creations this Brooklyn artist has in the works including tables, a pomodoro, and a table lamp.. Her work is scheduled to be sold commercially at West Elm and other major outlets shortly. These chairs were also featured at a show in Milan, Italy. Not too bad for a New York girl!

Which of the three designs is your favorite?
