There’s no joke, no-no! While living these insecure times, talking luxury has become a trivial doing. Offensive and to be handled with care, the luxury topics are le nouvel interdit.

Hermès Pippa folding chair a limited edition campaign chair made of black crocodile skin with a matte finish. The frame is made of maple with an ebony finish. The hardware is nickel plated.

All that and more for $24,000. But you won’t have just a chair for that price! No-no! You’ll have a piece of history. Of Hermès history! The Pippa chair was first made in the 1980s by (architect, designer and wife of Hermès PDG Jean-Louis Dumas-Hermès) Rena Dumas.

She took inspiration in the 40s and 50s furniture created by Jean Michel Frank and Paul Dupre Lafont for Hermès. The original Pippa folding chair was made in pear wood and leather. This crocodile reedition of the original Pippa outstands its ancestor through finish, contemporary aesthetics and… price!

Do you think the golden rule of an outfit (wearing one expensive, brand accessory) can apply to interior decoration? Placing this Hermès Pippa folding chair in a home could add style and definition to any house? (justluxe via elitechoice)

No I don’t think that actually, its not what you wear but how you wear it. I do think that this chair belongs in a museum collection though.
