Our ever-inventive friend Jorge Alameda of Casamidy was inspired to create the Fiets chair after a recent trip to Amsterdam. "Fiets means bike in Dutch," he says. "We couldn't help but notice that people in Amsterdam need to personalize their bikes, because there are so many of them."
The customizable chair comes in several options; with fabric panels or synthetic webbing (denim, white canvas, Sunbrella), it's $800, and with leather straps (saddle, black, or raw), it's $950 (N.B.: The frame can be matched to any Pantone color sample at no extra cost).
