I love the look of this Alain Berteau Instant Classic Side Chair, but I like the packaging even more. Featured in the May/June 2007 issue of Blueprint, this sassy seat arrives de-constructed and folded up into an impossibly flat box.
With just eight screws and a few minutes, you can transform the birch wood panel into a cute chair with a slightly cartoonish silhouette. The chair is available in an unfinished or clear-varnished version ($150) or in different different lacquered shades ($225). These chairs would be great as a set around a casual kitchen table, or just use one as a conversation piece in a living room or bedroom.
