Metamorphosis The Design The changes we have endured inspired me to create this beautiful chair called Metamorphosis. This chair design is made to show the beauty that can come out of hard times. The end result of tough times in life can be fascinating. I designed this chair to look similar to a butterfly. A butterfly starts out as a caterpillar and goes through a metamorphosis in order to become a butterfly with wings, color, and so much life. Butterflies symbolize personal change, transformation, hope, courage and in essence, is a rebirth of life.I long for us all to have courage, hope for the future, and be open to change and transformation, especially after this past year. When you see this chair, I want you to feel all of these and know that we are capable of enduring transformations that we never saw coming. So take a seat, a deep breath, and spread your wings- the best is yet to come!
