Animal lovers will appreciate this striking collection of bespoke chairs.

But anyone interested in getting their hands on one of the beast-shaped seats may well need to sit down after looking at the price tag.

Designed by artist Maximo Riera, the five intricately moulded pieces of furniture range from £35,000 for an octopus creation to £65,000 for a whale.

Interesting!
Glad this isn't taxidermy art!
As much as I love animals, not sure if I like them. I think kids might.
The flukes chair is kinda cool though.

I thought they were a little gross (especially the octopus and the colouring) - love the animal concept but would have liked the chairs alot more if they had been based on the big cats, bears, giraffes, zebras etc.

If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Imagination can be better than reality at times :whistle:
It's very interesting. You can find zombies wandering around at midnight and chit-chat with them as long as you want :whistle:  :innocent:

They look more comfortable than a beanbag.

I can't wait for the three piece suite collection.
