Sometimes the simplest ideas make the biggest impact. I think that is why I love the Family Chairs by Lina Nordqvist at Design House Stockholm.
If you look closely, each chair has its own individual style. Sold as a foursome, the chairs are available in black-lacquer (shown here) or natural wood and priced at $700 for the set.
They recently won the Accent on Design Award at the NYGIF and I'm not surprised one bit. If these worked in my home, I'd seriously consider buying them.
