I admit that this awesome chair first caught my eye because I have this very same signed print by artist Sylvia Ji hanging on my wall in a very conspicuous place, so I stare directly at it multiple times a day. The Maria Throne, as its called, is a limited edition single-person sofa made using hand-shaped mahogany frames, with hand carvings and a black gloss lacquer finish.  It’s upholstered traditionally, using high-density foams, with a faux suede fabric bearing the Day of the Dead-esque print on the seat back and rear of the chair.

If suede isn’t your thing, you can request a special leather option with the exact same print (at an extra price, of course). Manufactured in a limited edition of just 33 pieces, each one with a sequentially numbered Certificate of Authenticity printed on the bottom,  this is not only a gorgeous piece of furniture but a highly collectible work of art, because Sylvia Ji is hot stuff!  The Maria Throne can be yours for £1,595, ($2,522.65) with shipping free to UK addresses.
