Designer furniture is part of the contemporary art movement that has been going all around the world since about the Sixties. The Sixties brought the most change to normal home furniture and from then on designer furniture had become a trademark, almost same for a car designer or an architectural style. Of course, this does not mean that furniture was not designed earlier, but that's the age from when the designing of furniture counts really as an alternative form of sculpture. Of course we can see some haute couture designs at every shows which are definitely not for the daily use and definitely not comfortable either. Yet, with Andy Warhol and the pop-culture, the art of furniture design has implemented several forms, the making of plastic furniture and has put it in the normal flats. These furniture which look good and they are mostly dead expensive is as much par of the exclusive lifestyle as a painting or a luxury car.
