KNQ Associates scours the net for beautiful objects for the home!

1 & 2. Stylish high back chairs by master chef and artist JinR of Green T. House. Each chair is a whimsical reinterpretation of a classic Chinese design. I particularly like the 3m tall 'official's hat' version (middle).

3. Inspired by a traditional log wood pillow of olden days, the Rock-a-bye bench mingles sculptural form with seating function. The good-looking bench is made of two pieces of fiberglass structure crafted skilfully together, enhanced by neatly coiled braided water hyacinth or silver leaved mosaic from its end to the center.

4. Designed in 2004 by Thai designer Eggarat Wongcharit , this chair successfully translated 2D graphic illusion inspired by renowned Op artist Victor Vasarely into 3D via modern wood working techniques. Rubber wood panels are criss-crossed together, forming a curvaceous seating part at the top. The result is a sculptural piece that is as good to look at as to sit on.

5. I guess you would never imagine that a rectangular table can be transformed into a round one. But as the Lotus table shows here, it's really possible. Made of a combination of solid and MDF wood, this extendeble table can be transformed from rectangular to round by simply turning the top, accommodating 6 people in the former and 8 in the latter.

I think the 3D chair in image #4 was a great find.
