Incredible chairs shaped like animals

(From Daily Mail) Animal lovers will appreciate this striking collection of bespoke chairs.

But anyone interested in getting their hands on one of the beast-shaped seats may well need to sit down after looking at the price tag.

Designed by artist Maximo Riera, the five intricately moulded pieces of furniture range from £35,000 for an octopus creation to £65,000 for a whale.

The Spanish artist has also created chairs shaped as an elephant, walrus, rhinoceros and lion at his studio in Cadiz.

The limited edition 353lb chairs are made in high-density polyurethane, and are held together by a metallic frame.

More than 30 professionals from five different companies have been involved in the process.

Every piece is manufactured to order, taking an average of 11 weeks to produce.
