Houser Walker ArchitectureDesign Statement
Our design for the 2017 Chairish Auction was inspired by a belief that children’s furniture should respect their intellect, imagination, and appreciation for classic design. Our chair builds upon several traditions and influences, arriving at a final form and shape that is both functional, can accommodate children from ages 5-10, and is built from solid woods and natural stains and oil finishes.

This fun-tastical and imagination-inspired game takes on the story of Alice in Wonderland in a classic Candyland adventure. As one plays, they will find themselves in sweet and yummy lands merged with the wacky and well-known characters from Alice in Wonderland. The inviting collection will sure to be a feast for the eyes and creative minds alike. We will be incorporating the characters of the Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat into the chairs as the players play along in the game.
This table and chair set becomes a one-stop self-expression station for kids to color their own world. Through a creative redux this set becomes a canvas with creative storage solutions where kids can express themselves for hours.
