Pink Wishbone Project

As someone who loves classic, iconic furniture, I've been pining for a Wegner Wishbone Chair, especially after I discovered that it was designed by Wegner as an homage to the Quan Yi, a Ming dynasty ceremonial chair.  Imagine my delight when I heard that 20 designers were updating the Wishbone Chair to benefit the Breast Cancer Foundation.

Oh, and all the chairs are pink.  Be still my Lisa-Frank-loving, 10-year-old heart.

Here are some of my faves:

Julie Hillman for the Pink Wishbone Project
Mid-century modern meets Zsa Zsa Gabor.

Sara Rothman for the Pink Wishbone Project
Sara Rothman's chair is cray-cray, and I love it.  It was inspired by the Portuguese Man O' War, but it reminds me of a giant Koosh ball.

Kelly Wearstler for the Pink Wishbone Project
Kelly Wearstler's chair has a leather cushion bedazzled (be-pinned?) with a gazillion safety pins.  Very Versace chic.  Looks about as comfortable as a Versace too.

You can see the rest of the designs on auction at the Charity Buzz website.  Which is your favorite?
