I tend to be drawn to chairs that have an architectural quality to them, but mixing styles and eras is a great way too. I'm definitely not afraid to place my Grandmother's wing chair and my Eames rocker next to each other. While not necessarily built for comfort, these chairs definitely fit the bill for a striking statement.

This chair looks like it was made from old Jenga pieces, but I love the unfinished, sculptural feel.
Doesn't this chair just look comfy?
Another take on the hooded chair...

The clawfoot feet and x-shaped legs add a personality to these otherwise simple chairs...

Like the Louis Ghost chair before it, this lucite wingback is a fantastic, modern take on a traditional chair.
