Pilgrim's Chair (Wife of Bath)
Pedro Da Costa Felgueiras
The Pilgrim's chair by Pedro da Costa Felgueiras, a set of three chairs made for Decorex 2016. Inspired by characters from the seminal Medival text The Canterbury Tales. This chair entitled 'Wife of Bath' is finished in Navy painted ash with a leather top and gold strip at the base.
One of a series of chairs designed by Pedro and inspired by Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, each chair is of the same three-legged design but the finish is inspired by a character from the epic poem. A stark contrast to the Parson's Chair, the Wife of Bath's chair is an extravagant piece, reflecting a life of worldly experience. Painted using historical pigments in a vibrant blue, and lacquered on the top with a sharp yellow, the base of the chair has been decorated with strip of gold leaf- representing the gap between her teeth- associated with lustful behaviour in medieval times.
