Pink Thing of The Day: Pig Chair Sculpture


Pig Chair By Pavia Burroughs

While this unique soft sculpture initially appears to be a sofa (due to its overall size and shape), a closer look reveals that this extremely cleverly designed Pig Chair isn’t really a couch, but more of a Love Seat (for two very skinny people) at best.  At any rate, it looks soft and comfy and is certainly a fantastic conversation piece. According to designer Pavia Burroughs (who created “Hillhock,” she she calls it, as part of her senior design thesis) the chair is, “completely hand stitched, upholstered in dusty pink velvet and pink satin, sports two hand carved walnut hooves and two glass taxidermy eyes. His entire body has been padded with 2″ upholstery foam. Being mostly carved from insulation foam, he is surprising light weight and durable. He could easily be picked up by one average adult (except for his awkward shape). His underside is covered in bottom cloth, making him easily pushed around a room.”

The chair sold on Etsy for $950 (pick up only on site in Philadelphia)!

  1. Clearly, $950 is a MORE than fair price to pay for what I would consider THE quintessential home necessity. Unfortunately, my life will be completely void of ANY meaning without one, AND I have to wait until May 19th to pick mine up! Hey Gail — can I catch a ride with you to Philly when you go pick yours up?
