Philippe Starck for Kartell Louis Ghost Chair

Product information

Created by innovative architect and product designer Philippe Starck, the Ghost chair has become a modern cult classic. The Baroque style, with its flamboyant flourishes, is boiled down into one single mould of polycarbonate.

Polycarbonate is highly durable, wipe-clean and practical. Up to 7 of these chairs can be stacked.

Philippe Starck is a legend of modern design whose repertoire has left permanent mark by producing some of the iconic shapes of the 20th century through his bold reworkings of everyday objects - from interiors to mass-produced consumer goods such as toothbrushes, chairs, and even houses.

Q & As

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Beautiful but expensive These are really beautiful chairs and SO comfortable! They were delivered quickly by the usual polite and helpful JL guys. There are cheap copies available but its worth paying extra for the real thing. They go with our John Lewis Enzo round table an absolute treat. If you have pets or kids be careful - they do scratch easily, but if you look after them they are wonderful! 08 December 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great chair poor quality control john lewis lovely chair looks amazing, however had to send three back and get a refund due to fractures in the arms, poor quality control from John Lewis, shame as all the staff were very helpful, going somewhere else to purchase a new one 30 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Philippe Starck Ghost Chair I had previously bought a ghost chair from a different online store and I am so pleased I bought this one from John Lewis the quality and look is far superior.The chair feels so much stronger and looks very stylish in my bedroom.Thankyou John Lewis once again you have proved to be a winner 05 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Poor Ordered one of these along with a Victoria chair for my newly extended bedroom. After the reviews, what a disappointment. One arm was cracked, the back of the chair was scratched in three different places and the other arm also had scratches on it. Obviously it went back on the van with the delivery driver. I would also add that the smaller chair also had a scratch on the leg - not what I would expect from JL. I will have another delivered, but any problems that will go straight back too. 13 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful chair Beautiful looking chair, fabulous quality, looks really impressive. I've used it with the JL Frost Console table as a dressing table and chair in my dressing room. Looks very glamorous and modern. Wouldn't hesitate to reccommend. 16 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Too beautiful & stylish Looks great in my new build open plan living/kitchen room (looks more spacious) I bought 2 of these to go with 2 Victoria ones using a wooden dining table. Comfortable, light weight, stackable and so cool. Beware not to have any metal clothing near them (incl Jeans). Use a microfiber cloth to clean them. So happy I bought these. 29 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Thrilled to bits! Ordered 6 of these chairs after reading the reviews. They are beautiful and so comfortable. They perfectly compliment our glass topped table and make the dining room look incredibly spacious. Fantastic service from John Lewis too - they arrived the day after I ordered them. 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning chairs Ive just had two of these black chairs delivered today to match my recently purchased John Lewis mystic square glass top table and they look totally stunning together. The chairs fit perfectly on opposite sides of the table and meet together underneath creating a beautiful symmetrical shape. The chairs look and feel high quality and are very comfortable too. Money well spent - I'm really delighted with them. 22 May 2012
