While it’s true that the architecture of a building is an extension of the person for whom it was designed, it is also rather limited in terms of the amount of personal expression it is allowed to show. Exterior architecture can only say so much. Interior architecture, on the other hand, is much more expressive of who and what your tastes are; it’s, indeed, an extension of your own personality.

Architect-designed furniture pieces are mini artworks in themselves that when viewed together, collectively transform a room into a work of art. A complex and carefully designed furniture piece tells not only a story about the architect, but the home owner as well.

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe created this magnificent chair, literally fit for royalty. The inspiration for this chair was taken from the Roman aristocrats’ chair called the Curule Chair, and it requires much more hand craftsmanship than any “common” chair.
