Chippendale Meets Machine Aesthetic
by Karen Ho Fatt at 15th Avenue

Chippendale couch adds a touch of whimsy to 4th Street by reconfiguring an antique couch and placing it in a modern street setting using contemporary materials and colours. This familiar and classic design has been redesigned to suit public use and pedestrian traffic.  An antique brought to the masses in the form of textured metal with two concrete cushions and a laser cut cat.
