Mini-Inspiration: Vitra Museum’s Miniature Chair Collection

Last weekend, we stepped into Jules Seltzer Associates, a contemporary + classics furniture design store located on Beverly Blvd. in the heart of furniture row. We immediately spied the Vitra Museum Miniature Chair Collection and absolutely fell in love with the mini-iconic pieces.

Every tiny chair was on display and the authenticity and integrity of each piece was quite remarkable. Many of the designers even collaborated in the creation of their own small-scaled reproductions. Per the Vitra Design Museum's description…"the original intention of the Museum to give visitors access to design not only by means of publications, but also in the form of three-dimensional objects, resulted in the creation of a unique museum product: models of the most important pieces of furniture in design history on a reduced scale."

Although a bit pricey per chair (pieces starting around $130 and bypassing $600), the inspiration and skilled craftsmanship would have any chair lover or modern furniture enthusiast welcoming these mini-icons into their home.
