Crafty to say the least

If you’re a child of the 80s, you’ll fondly remember the papasan chair. If you didn’t grow up falling asleep at every slumber party held by your best friend Tiffany in one these babies (while still clutching your Cool Ranch Doritos and MTV still blaring on the TV), see below for reference. single_papasan

Now, the next below shot is a  creation from Norway-based furniture designer, Camilla Hounsell Halvorsen. Not only is the name much cooler (Drops chair) it’s also made exclusively from recycled material.  It can sit on its four-legged stainless steel frame or it can be taken off and placed on the ground to be used as a pouffe. So, it pretty much kicks the papasan chairs ass, but still reminds me of some cozy memories  delivered in a much more chic piece. I’ll just have to try and not get my cool ranch Doritos crumbs on this guy.
