Who buys a Ball Chair with a watermelon colour scheme? Ball Chairs or Globe Chairs, are a classic design from 1966 by Eero Aarnio. Classically Ball Chairs are white, silver or a primary colour, so it is not the chair design but the watermelon colour scheme that has raised the question. The colour scheme is complete with a red interior just like a real watermelon, but without the pips. Décor is another classic excuse, like “gifts”, for buying useless stuff. But what kind of décor would require a watermelon coloured ball chair – vegetable garden? And what colours would you try to match it with – pumpkin, passionfruit or mango?
