Actress Lekha Washington’s new pocket square chair is quirky and striking
LEKHA Washington likes all things odd. As part of her furniture collection, Ajji, the actress and model has come up with a new pocket square chair, which is made from stretchable material and is unusally perched on a wall. Assuring us about its comfort, the designer admits she wanted to give it a quirky twist. “Though there are no prints right now, I am collaborating with a French designer, Jean-Francois Lesage (Chennai-based) to come up with customised printed upholstery,” she adds. Giving the furniture a different perception, she firmly believes that the square is an art space. “I am going to apply print technology on this stretchable material. It is a removable cover. So you have more options,” she shares. In keeping with her earlier abstract designs , like the ‘dot’ furniture (a chair suspended from the ceiling), this pocket square is minimalistic and unconventional. Retailing at Delhi and Mumbai, Washington reveals that her latest celebrity clients include Karan Johar. “I cannot afford my own products and thus I am working on smaller pieces that can be picked up by anyone,” she laughs.
Her products range from `6,000 to a lakh. The chair is available on ajji.in
