Phillip Estlund’s Decoupaged Vintage Eames Shell Chairs

Phillip Estlund is a Greek-born, Florida- and NYC-based sculpture and collage artist who hit upon the idea for his series of hand-decoupaged vintage Eames chairs quite by accident: “I often work with imagery from field guides and books containing detailed images from nature,” he explains. “As I was organizing cut-out images of flowers, I laid them out on several surfaces, including on the seat of my Herman Miller, Eames molded-fiberglass chair. The otherwise stark surface became immediately activated in a way that I hadn’t considered, and after arranging and adhering the flowers to the seat, the result was the Bloom Chair.” That chair was the first in his Genus series for Grey AreaClick here for purchasing info!
