Hermès never ceases to amaze with their ultra-luxurious offerings, and they've gone a step further by creating a $24,000 portable chair. Granted, the Pippa chair is outfitted with matte black crocodile skin, but still. "The limited edition small space-friendly chair that can be folded into a compact package comes in fine ebony finishing with legs and arms painted in nickel metal." We're not impressed, but on the other hand, we could totally see this appearing in Ed Westwick's dressing room. [Born Rich]
