This list shows how inventors have gone far beyond the boundaries of normal furniture design, these unusual seats and chairs are more than just something to sit on. Artists have created both bizarre and odd looking chair designs – they are wacky, weird and do not conform to normal convention! Where would we be without these left-field thinkers and their peculiarities? Furniture designers from Berlin to Tokyo are producing eccentric and curious armchairs, sofas, benches and have been the architects of many diverse and frankly unusual pieces of furniture. The world’s most talented designers have made chairs which really make you sit up and take notice!
We’ll start things off with perhaps a less obvious choice. The American sitcom Cheers suffered poor ratings when it first started out in 1982 – which almost resulted in it being cancelled during the first season – but it soon quite rightly became highly popular and it survived, running for 11 seasons until 1993. It starred a number of well-known American actors including Ted Danson, Shelley Long and Rhea Perlman, and it also launched the career of then-unknown Woody Harrelson, who went on to become quite a star – starring most recently in the 2014 HBO series True Detective alongside Matthew McConaughey.
