I love art, and know way toooo much about it. And this is a waste. There are much more reputable chairs, and ones that will actually retain value. this is not of them.

A chair that was made in the early 1900's and looks like it was made last year...awesome. But why would someone spend 30,000,000 on a chair? I would if I could. :D
