Elizabeth Taylor Tribute: Cleopatra and the Klismos Chair

In honor of the late and great Elizabeth Taylor, inspiration for today's Daily Design comes from her 1963 classic film, Cleopatra. The movie is a visual delight, glittered with period costumes, dramatic make-up and inspiring sets and furniture.

Many of the over-the-top Egyptian furniture designs wouldn't translate so well today--can you imagine sitting down at the dinner table in a massive King Tut-style throne chair? However, the Egyptians did craft their own version of the Greek Klismos chair that has made a comeback as of late. To incorporate a little Elizabeth Taylor-in-Cleopatra style into your own home, try one of these modern Klismos chairs that echo the glamour and power of Egyptian royalty.
