Kids’ Drawings Made Into Real Furniture

children-drawing-furniture-1

The Children’s Furniture Project is a collaboration between artists Jack Beveridge and Joshua Lake. They asked a class of 7 and 8 year olds to draw a chair. Now they’re making the drawings into real life furniture. So far they’ve made two: a red and yellow rocker with a little fish bowl attached and a red and green Dennis Deniss The Menace rollie chair. Below you can see the whole set of drawings which will also be built. They… are pretty impressive. Definitely far better than I could have managed. Not that would come to a shock to anyone. Including me. I know my limits!

‘working with a local primary school, we took an art class and gave the children a simple piece of paper with the words, ‘please draw a chair’. with a little encouragement and some coloring in pencils, the children started scribbling away their dream chair! after an hour, we had the most beautiful selection of designs that we couldn’t come close to even dreaming of.’ – joshua lake
