If you're a fan of antiques and retro furniture, then you appreciate a good story about your furnishing's history. It seems unlikely that you would want to display a piece of furniture that spent years on a busy street corner in New York City, but legendary artisan John Carter hopes to convince you otherwise. Lauded as "one of the 30 artists who will change our culture" by The New York Times, Carter pushes the proverbial envelope with his eye-opening, interactive interior designs and progressive artwork.

One his most recent masterpieces, the "Walk/Don't Walk" chair, which comes standard with all the genuine scuffs and stains from its days on the street, epitomizes the new industrial chic. Reglazed with 1" thick polished resin and cushioned with felt suspension, the "Walk/Don't Walk" chair is fully operational as actual seating or functional street signs--just plug into any standard 115V AC outlet.

$2,700.00 Materials: steel, metal Dimensions: 33" L X 24" W x 35" H
