The Valley Hand Painted Chair by Philip Lumbang III

We thought we'd end the week with a positive figure from our community: Philip Lumbang III is a Los Angeles artist renowned for beautifying the streets of Silver Lake with his "awesome bears" murals (one which we happened upon during our recent architectural tour up in the hills of the 90026). His latest creation is a hand painted chair that is as colourful and friendly as his artwork...

The Valley Hand Painted Chair was created using a Dunbar chair from Silver Lake furnishings retailer, Living Room (by chance, they're offering the Dunbar style sofa on sale right now for $1295, so you can have a "blank canvas" if you're so inclined) and seems inspired the lush hills of Silver Lake. The chair has been mentioned as great addition for a child's room, but to be honest, we'd be more than happy to have it in our room as an adult. Because colorful doesn't have to mean childish...it can simply be young at heart, playful or reflective of the personality within.
