Socks for chairs. Yes, really!

When I was thirteen, my friends and I spent an inordinate amount of time choosing ‘fun’ socks. Our socks made a statement – I had all sorts of animals, flags, patterns and colours to co-ordinate with my cherry red Converse high-tops or my black Doc Marten lace-ups!

I’m not really sure how Berlin-based designers Chris & Ruby came up with the idea of socks for chairs, but they are certainly fun and do lend plain chairs a particular personality. Yes, it is bizarre to see a straight back kitchen chair in argyles but hey, why not? If you work better sitting on a desk chair that dons sports socks, then go for it! If your little girl loves hot pink, why stop at the walls, bedspread and furniture – give her chair some stripey pink socks!

Aside from the bizarre and humorous reasons to keep your chair legs warm, Personality Socks have a practical purpose – they protect your wooden floors from scratches (so are a really good idea if you have kids that drag their chair around).

Contact Chris & Ruby directly via Design Spray regarding shipping options to Australia. Personality Socks are €15 for a set of four.
