Home Decor: Famed French luxury house Hermes has come out with an ultra-luxe update on its classic Pippa folding chair, finished in the world's finest matte black crocodile skin. The limited edition campaign-style chair is made of ebony finish maple with nickel plated hardware and sells for $24,000. The Pippa chair was originally fashioned in pear wood and leather 20 years ago by architect and designer Rena Dumas, principal of the Paris-based design firm Rena Dumas Architecture Interieur and wife of Hermes President Jean-Louis Dumas-Hermes.

The Pippa chair, which has since evolved into a line of foldable indoor and outdoor furniture, was in turn inspired by the leather furniture designed by Jean Michel Frank and Paul Dupre-Lafont for Hermes in the 1940s and 1950s, which has since become something of a holy grail in design circles. Dumas furniture is sleek and contemporary with references to Hermes saddle making tradition in the use of leather and stitching. Besides the furniture, Dumas has also designed accessories in silver, such as picture frames and candlesticks, as well as the interiors of several Hermes boutiques.
