Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair – Review

For many years now I have lusted over the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair, living in hope that perhaps one day I might own one.  So when Lakeland Furniture came along and offered my to try out their reproduction version, I jumped at the chance.

Lakeland Furniture specialise in high end reproductions of famous designs and all the modern classics, as well as a huge range of the UK’s best value bar stools and dining chairs.


I chose the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair in Smoky, a classic, neutral shade that looks elegant in design, stylish and a piece that turns heads when someone walks in the room.  In fact the first question they ask is “Is the chair comfortable?”.  To which I can honestly say that it is.

Philippe StarckI think the Philippe Starck chair would look great placed in a hallway or bedroom, a great statement chair.  The fact that it is reproduction – well without seeing and comparing it to the original it’s hard to tell the what the differences would be.  There are a few joins that I think would be better in the original but this is of perfectly acceptable quality to me and I’m very happy with it and would rather not have the designer price tag!

The Philippe Starck chair is surprisingly sturdy and seems to be built to last  – well I hope it lasts me a long time – I love this chair and think it’s a stylish piece not to be missed!

Lakeland Furniture offer a range of designer copies such as Charles Eames, Xavier Pauchard and many more.  They have a vast choice of bar stools, dining chairs and office chairs as well, so there is something to suit everyone.  Why not check them out?

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions. We are not paid for reviews although we do receive the product to try out and enable us to write the review.

    Determine whether your sofa is a good fit for your space and since there are sofas to fit any style of room, look for one that satisfies your own personal sense of style.
