The American Pipe Dream Chair by Benjamin Rollins Caldwell of BRC Designs is a one of a kind armchair whose frame is composed of half inch copper tubing.
With copper prices at an all time high, theft of copper has become a growing problem. Caldwell became frustrated after a thief stripped the copper out of one of his welding machines; completely destroying the expensive machine for a couple dollars worth of copper. The American Pipe Dream Collection is a response to these crimes. Composed of half inch copper piping, which has been soldered together in a maze-like method inspired by the windows computer pipe screen saver. The Chair is finished with a fine glass bead blasting and sealed with an industrial metal sealer.
The chair cushion is upholstered in a faux emu leather with a goose down cushion for comfort.
Dimensions: 40″w x 40″d x 30″h
