Pharrell's $20,000 chair

Creative mogul Pharrell Williams is known for knocking down the barriers between art, music, fashion and, now, high-end furniture design. His Eames-inspired Perspective Chair recently went on view in the prestigious art gallery Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris and made quite a statement—especially for a first time exhibitor.

Williams has diverted the famous Eames chair into his own vision of style, creating a smoking hot collector's piece of liveable art. The chair comes in "hot" red, "chic" black, "good-looking" teal and "popping" yellow, with only four of each color available. With prices starting at $20,000 a piece, the chair is well out of reach for many of his loyal fans.
