Sink Into the Comforting Folds of the 'Skin Chair,' Which Looks and Smells Like Human Flesh Or, you know, don't

At last, you don't need to be a degenerate military dictator (or Ed Gein) to soak up the luxuries of sitting on piles of human skin. Or at least, creepy facsimiles thereof.

London-based designer Gigi Barker has made a leather "Skin Chair" that looks (and smells!) like actual human flesh, thanks to the modern miracle that is pheromone-infused silicone. The design and smell of the chair are apparently modeled after an actual individual's body, and it probably feels a lot like sitting on Jabba the Hutt.

Barker made these for the London Design Festival in September, but they're for sale to the public as well, just in case you have $2,500 lying around. (The ottoman, though, officially called the "Skin Stool," is a steal at $675.)
