These mohair chairs are for sale at 1stDibs.com and are part of the Antony Todd Collection. I saw them in a tiny bottom corner of a recent issue of InStyle magazine and they immediately caught my eye. First, the rich, striking teal color is a luxe attention-getter on it's own.... add to that the gilded, carved frames and the fact that the teal upholstery is mohair, simply one of the most fabulous textiles available.
Mohair is from the angora goat, and is so lustrous, easily dyeable and resilient that it's one of the most coveted upholstery fabrics available. It has a beautiful velvety sheen but is naturally flame resistant (as all natural protein fibers are). Because of these desirable inherent qualities it is a costlier choice than velvet but there simply is no hair as gorgeous as mohair in the decorating world.
