Prickly pair chairs is a result of the creative experience of a Mexican designer in Europe. Valentina Gonzales Wohlers has designed them based on the classical French oval chair originated in the Rococo period during the reign of Louis XV and has since been adopted throughout central Europe. Although she added the Nopal cactus decorations to it to symbolize Mexican heritage and national pride. According to legend, the Gods told the Aztecs to build Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City) in the place they saw an eagle standing on a Nopal, devouring a snake. To this day, the image resides on the National Shield. The blend of these two iconographic elements allowed Valentina to create a very original pair of chairs. Don’t you think that cactus-inspired furniture become a new trend? We already showed you the Cactus Chair by Deger Cengiz and the Cactus Stool and now these beautiful Prickly Pair Chairs…
