These 28 creative chairs and armchairs will prove that even something as mundane as a chair can be turned into a work of art in the hands of a skilled designer or artist.

One of the coolest things about these chairs is that almost all of them seem like they’d actually be comfortable. Finding a delicate balance between artistry and comfort is no easy feat, especially when your chair is a giant skull or a cactus. It is the fine balance struck between ergonomics and art that makes them so impressive.
