The first time I heard the name about Louis ghost chair, I immediately feel the creepy feeling on my shoulder just because of hearing this very strange name for a char. Furniture with this kind of name could be something that has been carrying out some kind of strange and sorrow background story since it involves a word “ghost” which is very uncommon to be used as a name, let alone furniture item name.

But then I came across the real story behind this name given to be the name of a chair, furniture that is made out of wood but with a strange and scary creepy name.

Upon close looks into several references that I can found over the internet for couple of days, I have came across the real fact as to why this classical looks chair being name as Louis ghost chair in the first place. Frankly, in terms of design time, this may consider as a modern design invented chair.

The used of look-through polycarbonate as a furniture material did not exist in the history of furniture business until just a decade ago. Although it carries out an old and classic Louis XI chair model, but the usage of this look through material makes it looks special.
