The Doily Chair is only a design as of now, but we wanted to share its lacy beauty with you here. Conceived by Tara Murray, an industrial designer based in Calgary, the chair was designed to combine the fragile, familiar doily with a chunky contemporary wooden frame...

The Doily Chair was an exploration in designing a new furniture piece utilizing an outdated object. The new composite linen doily has found its home supported on a wide walnut chair frame. The recontextualized doily provokes images of grannies and formal parlours of the past yet maintains its contemporary proportions and usage.
