Martha Angus Hot Chair

We bring to you the "Hot Chair" from Martha Angus, Inc. And our very own Cassandra was lucky enough to help create the fun chair that was donated to charity. And so the story of the "Hot Chair" begins...


Veranda Magazine and Roche Bobois asked Martha to participate in the creation of a plain Louis XVI style chair into something Fabulous! Once finished the chair would then be auctioned off and the money would be given to the charity of the designers choice. Which in Martha's case was SmileTrain.


The inspiration behind the design was a fun and feminine vanity chair that a woman would feel fabulous having in her home or apartment, to sit on while doing her makeup! The goal of the chair was to be bright, cheerful and hip. And that it is, with the bright pink fabric on the front, spray painted frame, silver embroidered letters, orange fabric on the back, and the pink velvet piping, the "Hot Chair" turned out to be a huge hit!


Such a huge hit in fact it was able to give SmileTrain a great donation. But the story gets better! The man who purchased the chair at the Roche Bobois fundraiser bought the chair as a gift for his soon to be bride. The plan - to give it to her as a gift, presented to her on their wedding day, as the chair she would get ready for her wedding on. Isn't that the sweetest story ever?


The "Hot Chair" found the perfect home, exactly where it was intended to be. And remember everyone, "U R HOT"!!!!!!!
