Theres a bit of history behind ghost chairs and one involves no less than a king. Philippe Patrick Starck, French product designer, took the form of the Louis XVI chair and reinvented it using a single piece of polycarbonate plastic. The result: a postmodern chair with neoclassic lines. Another popular transparent chair by Starck is the armless Victorian ghost chair which was based on its 18th century predecessor. (Cheaper replicas can now be bought, or rented for use in large events.) Ghost chairs are chic, contemporary, minimalist. They are versatile, blending well with practically all kinds of material. And, man, don’t they make outdoor weddings look simply ethereal?
