The original chair is a Prie-Dieu found in Oudemolstraat. The chair is made of wicker and wood and the seat (wicker xas very damage). After a first layer of white painting and strong consolidation of the seat, the chair was transformed into a pirate chair for little Timeo.
The seat was strengthen with papier maché and glue and a compas painted. The rudder has 4 handles and is fixed to the top armrest with a heavy screw. The handles are covered with rope and painted in black. Front of the chair. Rope is covering some part of the chair as well but vernished this time to give a naval aspect. A pirate, 2 sharks, crossed pistols and rhum bottles decorate the front of the chair
The top armrest is a pirate map with, of course, a treasure island, some misterious places and a boat. Everythink to please captain Timeo!

The original chair was given by a friend. White and red are the colour code for the background. The different lines of the chair are perfect for a Pac Man environnment.

The chair has been covered with famous Elle's covers (around 20) from the first cover in 1945 to Hello Kitty in 2010. Covers are from international editions (Taiwan, Norway, UK, Danmark...)
The borders are topped with orange fur fitting the curvy shape
Original chairThe chair has a round up and curvy shape which will perfectly fit with an ELLE chair.
Original chair was found in Scheveningen, it's a rattan chair very strong and quite heavy.After a nice WE in Barcelona, I decided to customised this chair into a Gaudi chair!
The chair was covered with papier maché to have a nice structure to glue the paper mosaic. I used 3 main colors: blue, red and yellow and in each color I used between 3 and 7 shades. I teared up old newspaper (from Albert Hein), separated the colors and glued to the structure.
The seat and the front are blue, the edge is red and some yellow spots have been added on the armrest and the top of the chair.
