Memories of children's happy moments ofteninspire creative people to new works, whether it's a painting, a musical composition or furniture. Australian designer Henry Sgourakis, who created the Nook Chair wicker chair, tells what inspired him: When I recall my childhood, I see myself running away from my grandmother's house to hide. The game of hide and seek on 3 acres of shrubbery around the house was a favorite entertainment. I remember the motley colors of the decor of the 50's and, basically, white lacy napkins adorning the armrests of the couch, the coffee table and most of the surfaces in the room. Therefore, I wanted to create a work that would evoke warm memories, children's feelings of joy, carefree and love, recalling the simplicity of the old life. In a world where technologies almost dictate the conditions of our existence, it is important for me to remember the past, the childhood, and carry these feelings into the future. The beauty of these hand-made chairs is created precisely for this purpose The armchair is a metal frame withwicker seat. The weaving is made of elastic rubber bands, therefore, under the weight of the seated person, the weave is stretched and forms a cozy nest. For greater comfort, you can put artificial fur, plaid and pillows. And for decorative purposes - to tie large feathers on the beads, then the wicker chair will acquire an ethno-character, reminiscent of the Indian "traps for dreams." The name of the Nook armchairs is verbatim in translation fromEnglish means "secluded corner". And really, somewhere in the garden in the country or in a country house in such seats it is good to retire, to remember childhood or to dream.
