Skull Armchair

Tired of the pretty and adorable? Put some memento mori in your home. Remind yourself daily of your inevitable demise. Here’s Harow’s polygonal skull armchair, which does a pretty good job of hiding the skull from the front, making it just the thing for super villains with a need for furnishings that work while on the job or taking a break. Price given on demand, which means if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it - but one can dream or nightmare.

Can’t get enough art history? We have two new courses starting next week. Check out “Art and Design: What’s the Difference?” and “Art and Ethics: 1900–Present.”
