Button Wednesday : Button Chairs

It is Wednesday again, so it's BUTTON DAY on my blog. It would be great if you could do the same; make your Wednesday a button day too. Have you seen a lovely, beautiful, stunning, crazy button or button-related thingy, or did you make something with a button / buttons, or did you even make buttons yourself, blog about it on your blog on Wednesday, and give the link here via Mister Linky at the end of this post.

Two weeks ago I blogged about button stools; so, today the button chair gets its turn. I am starting with some Curious Objects from curious artist Dianne Vetromile; Dianne's work is funky and very imaginative, and she recycles everything you can imagine. I love her button chairs the most :)

And I fell in love with this "Button-land" chair from Australian artist Adelle, created with acrylic paint, buttons and a mini children's chair rescued from hard rubbish; it's the most lovely and playful thing you can imagine.

Then I found a very unique button chair created in 1998 as a tribute to all women – as well as their families, friends and support networks – who have battled breast cancer in North Carolina. Every button represents a unique story of courage and strength, each having belonged to a breast cancer survivor or someone who lost their battle with the disease.

And I found a beautiful upcycling idea for a medallion chair at Casa Sugar, turning this proper piece of furniture into a very personal chair.

And at the end of this blogpost, a compilation of button chairs found on Flickr.
