I've often pondered taking in some old worn furniture and having it spray painted with automotive paint. But I've never considered adorning furniture in automotive carbon fiber like the team at Garageworks Industries have done with a selection of Eames rocker and shell chairs. There's something very sexy about the results...as if Charles Eames and Tom Ford had decided to work together.
What was once modern-fun is transformed into something more textural and mysterious, a shining example of how choice of materical can affect the visual personality of any object (I love how the brown side chair looks like bump textured leather). I'd personally love to see them make a matching MidCentury carbon fiber credenza, with a leather lined interior, taking the automotive design analogy even further. Not that I could afford it, but you know, sometimes the fun is in the daydreaming. [via Carbon Fiber is Rad]
