About the Designer
Philippe Starck France (1949 - )
He remembers having spent his childhood under his father's drawing tables, passing hours stitching, cutting, gluing and grinding, disassembling bicycles, motorbikes and other objects. Endless hours, an entire life spent dismantling and reassembling anything that fell into his hands, reconstructing his surrounding world. He continues to shake the traditions and culture of the world's major cities, with the interior design of the restaurant at Hong Kong's Peninsula Hotel (1994), the Teatron in Mexico (1995), the Delano Hotel a Miami (1995), the Modrian in Los Angeles (1996), the Asia de Cuba restaurant in New York (1997), as well as an entire series of ongoing projects in London and elsewhere. His skill lies in being able to transform instantly the object of the commission into a place filled with charm, pleasure and encounters. He tirelessly modifies everyday life, exalting the deepest roots of existence in his changes. His increasing fascination with life has now led him to create clothes, underwear, footwear, glasses, food, and always with the conviction that his design respects nature and the future of humankind. In the exhibits of museums all around the world, in Paris, New York, Munich, London, Chicago, Kyoto and Barcelona, his work is considered to be that of a master. He has received numerous prizes and awards: designer of the year, the Oscar de luminaire (1980), the title of Officier des Artes et des Lettres (1985), Compasso d'Oro ADI (2001), Show Boats in Munich (2003), and many others.

little queen's throne
Elana from Queens, NY – Verified Buyer– Top 100 Reviewer
My granddaughter thinks she is the Queen in this fun chair. I was a little extravagant in buying this gift but her smile is worth it. This chair is lightweight, a very contemporary fantasy piece............exactly like her mother's. ........... Pros: a fantasy chair, dramatic, lighweight, very durable, washable, fun Cons: can be a little pricey
Stylish Child's Chair
Janet from San Francisco, CA – Verified Buyer
Just as stylish and sturdy as the adult version of the Louis Chair! We already had the adult version, and needed to begin a set of the smaller version....for the young people we've recently been blessed with in our lives.
Sue from Los Angeles, CA – Verified Buyer
We LOVE these chairs for our little girls. They are the perfect addition to the kids table we have in our family room/kitchen area. SO cute to see the mini version.

Chair is wonderful. It has lived in my living room, play room, and bedroom. Durable and stylish. I'll be stashing it in the attic for my grandkids to use one day.
Fun and classy

These chairs are so cute and look great in any corner of the room. They add a bit of sophisticated, modern, sci-fi to the space, which is hard to get from a kids' chair.

To expensive for a plastic chair
Jennifer from Carlsbad, CA – Verified Buyer
This chair looks great and I don't mind mixing it with my other modern family room furniture. We have kids so I want it to look like we do but with style!! The problem I have with these chairs is that they aren't a heavier plastic. They aren't very sturdy and for[$] they are cheap feeling. They look good but they aren't made well enough for the money.
oyuki from san francisco, CA – Verified Buyer
Not only is this little chair so cute, I bought it for a major discount. It was a returned product. Totally worth it.
