Normally I don’t go for things made from real animals, but the photo set associated with Joe Kish‘s update of Hans Wegner‘s Teddy Bear Chairs is just too hilarious. He reupholsters vintage chairs for this fuzzy effect. Now, upholstering with real teddy bear fur would be a different story (leave the heads attached)! See the photos at Apartment Therapy.

    Lisa (editor lisa) over at apartment therapy just commented on the post to say that it is NOT real fur (which I thought was pretty obvious from the photos…)
    Just heading off any potential intense debates!

    Thanks for the update; I don’t spend enough time around real OR fake bear fur to be able to tell the difference from these images.
