GLITTERING SCRIVENER

MARIA DAHVANA HEADLEY'S MANUSCRIPTS, ILLUMINATED
BURROWERS - Alannah Currie. Fox Chair. 2008. 

So, formerly 1/2 of the Thompson Twins, at some point Alannah Currie took a huge detour, went to upholstery school, and began to make very weird and wonderful chairs. Which are also nests, burrows, curiosities in the Victorian mold, but hybrids. 
All the animals are roadkill, so memento mori. 
The chairs are roadkill too - begin-agains that Currie has deconstructed and then reconstructed, some stuffed with stories, some with hair.
Needless to say, I love them. 
A great interview with Allanah Currie regarding upholstery, death, and shifting lives: http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/2008/apr/26/homes
See also: Nicola L’s anthropomorphic furniture; Cloud furnishings; Moth bulbs; Rats Reaching for the Moon; Roadside Attractions. (and almost everything else on this Tumblr, too. There is common ground in my beloved things category.)
