You would be hard put to find a more iconic and well branded company than the Italian company Kartell.
Founded in 1949, Kartell has built their brand on high design, technology, materials and making an ordinary product like a chair make you say "Wow". The recently released Uncle Jim chair is a perfect example.
The crystal chairs like the Ghost chair by Phillipe Starck or the Stand By chair by Patricia Urquiola all have several things in common. They are perfect with contemporary, transitional or traditional furniture - they can be used singly or in groups of 8 or 10 - they will make the living room, dining room or bedroom sing - and they are beautifully and uniquely designed.
Look for the bright red Kartell logo to insure you are getting the real thing.
