Looking for a statement piece to spice up your stodgy living room? Check out the Seat Belt Rocking Chair and Ottoman from the Phillips Collection in the Las Vegas Design Center. The trendy furnishings are the brainchild of young Thai designer Nuttapong, whose sister owns a seat-belt factory. “He would visit the plant and see spools of seat-belt strapping being woven together and thought it would make a great furniture design,” vice president and creative director Jason Phillips says. The Seat Belt Collection, which also includes a dining chair and leaf bench, comes in a variety of playful hues such as orange, red, black, purple, white and green. Want the stylish décor? Shell out $1,799 for the rocking chair and $779 for the ottoman.
