Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design.

Philippe Starck has obtained many important acknowledgements, including the Grand Prix National de la Création industrielle and the Honor Award of the American Institute of Architects. In Starck's own words, "subversive, ethical, ecological, political, humorous... this is how I see my duty as a designer."

Very modern, practical, comfortable

We purchased 2 smoke-colored Charles Ghost Stools for our apartment -- they definitely match the sleek, stainless decor we are going for. They are sturdy, comfortable, and very practical -- be careful when you order though, so that you order the right height!!! Highly recommended.

Charles Ghost Stools are beautiful!

I purchased 2 Charles Ghost stools in crystal to go along with a bar height table from a more moderately priced retailer. The addition of the stools makes the table look more elegant. The color of the stools allows for them to be used in any environment, so they can be moved from room to room easily! They look beautiful & were received in my tight time frame.

It's stunning

The Charles Ghost Stool is beautifully made and stunning the way that it captures light in a room. The rose is more orange than rose, though.

very Beautiful

We received three Charles Ghost Stools in orange, crystal and blue. The proportions, transparent color and overall high-quality render these stools wonderfully sculptural and elegant in nature!
We could not be happier with our purchase and timeliness!!!

The Charles Ghost stool in pale green is simply stunning.

Working with YLighting was a friendly, efficient experience. They were most cooperative about giving me EXACT dimensions, as the stool sits over a small kitchen pipe and had to be able to clear it. My counters are dark green marble and the backsplash is a pale mint green. The green stool looks as if Kartell and I collaborated on the design and color! I love it!

A Practical Work of Art

This beautiful stool is in our bathroom where, having broken my foot, I can sit on it to apply makeup. Its transparency also makes it perfect for the small room. Even if it were not so practical, it is a piece of art.

Fun and colorful and will make a nice addition to our store.

We will see how long the life of this product is in commercial setting. I am worried about the durability of the plastic.

I love this stool!

I wasn't really sure if I would like this stool for my kitchen. I loved the look but wasn't sure if they would look cheesy or not. They are so substantial and fantastic I am going to order 3 more!
