Design by Philippe Starck.
Made in Italy by Kartell.

Philippe Starck has reinvented the classic Louis XVI for Kartell. A comfortable armchair in transparent and colored polycarbonate in the Louis XV style, it is the quintessence of baroque revisited to dazzle, excite and captivate. Louis Ghost is the most daring example of the world of injected polycarbonate in a single mold. Despite its evanescent and crystalline appearance, Louis Ghost is stable and durable, shock, scratch and weather resistant. It can also be stacked six high. This article has great charm and considerable visual appeal and brings a touch of elegance and irony to any style of home or public place.

Also sold in sets of 4 chairs: Louis Ghost, Set of 4 Chairs.

Philippe Starck

Born in Paris in 1949, Philippe Starck is one of the most original designers and architects of the last three decades. Having designed furniture, hotels, mega-yachts, lighting and many others throughout his career, Starck has become a fixture in modern design. Not only does Starck create beautifully unconventional designs, he creates a finished product whose main purpose is to function well before anything else.

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."

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a nice chair, but a little pricey I received my chair and it had some scratches on it from the factory, which I thought was strange because they market the chair as scratch resistant. I must say YLighting made the return process extremely pleasant and really not a lot of work for me (UPS came to pick it up). It has taken almost 2 weeks to receive the replacement whereas I received the first chair in 3 days. I haven't gotten the full experience of it yet, but the little that I did I thought the chair was a little "flimsy" for the price, not as sturdy as I would have liked... But you can not deny that it's a beautifully designed chair that makes a statement, which is why I'm keeping it and I don't regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect chairs for my new living room! I have been wanting a pair of louis ghost chair and finally got it! The shipping was very fast, i receive the chair within 5 business days. But the packing was a little disappointing. With the extra fee that was charged for 'kartell handling', i would expect a little more packaging that would protect the chairs better. When the chairs arrived, the box has a 5-inch opening from one side, right where the arm is. Its probably no one's fault i mean shipping gets rough sometimes, luckily the arm wasnt scratched but kartell should provide a thicker paper box in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful chairs and wonderful service from YLiving The Ghost chairs are amazing--mixing a traditional silhouette with an unexpected material. Despite being made out of polycarbonate (i.e., plastic), these chairs are sturdy, elegant and very well made. They do not look like plastic but more like glass chairs. They are truly a piece of art and I am so very happy with them! More importantly, I cannot say enough good things about YLiving. They are the real deal...professional, courteous, prompt and helpful. I will be patronizing this store in the future for my modern pieces!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As elegant as it is practical! This is the perfect chair when you need extra seating and don't want the room to look too full. It is much more comfortable than you would expect. Looks great anywhere and it can even go outdoors. It is a true classic which will stand the test of time. We purchased the clear version but I have seen the different colors and they still have a lightness to them which makes them appear almost weightless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good chair as much as it is famous, this chair is worth to get. The quality is great considering its affordable price, and it goes very well with all kinds of furniture. thanks to its material, which is plastic, this can be used in the wet place like bathroom. however, you can think of the down side that when you sit down on the chair in the winter, it is very cold of course. and scratch would be inevitable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm in love with a ghost. I am so pleased with my purchase, and with YLighting. This was my first purchase with YLighting and I have only compliments for the company: easy ordering process, speedy delivery, and well-packed goods. (So well packed, in fact, it took about an hour to remove all of the packing "peanut" residue from my chair. But the chair arrived in perfect condition.) I adore my chair. Adore!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Invisibly Cool! The Louis Ghost Chair I ordered from YLiving is a hit according to my friends and family! My decorator is mad, though, because she just ordered six ghost chairs for another client from another location and paid much more for them and she is STILL waiting on them after 6 weeks! Mine arrived in less than one week! I love it and YLiving made it very easy to be Invisibly Cool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fresh Choice for Teenager This chair was recommended by our interior designer, Robyn Scott, as the perfect fit our teenage daughter's room renovation. The style and size are perfect for her. It's a bit wobbly for me, but seems just right for 5'6" and 98 lbs. Not something I would put around my dining room table for adult guests. Purchase process and delivery were happy and uncomplicated.
