This Chair Has a Secret

You think you know … but you have no idea about this chair. ("I'm not just some rigid diva," it says. "People see me and they're like, 'Oh, a chair,' and like, yes, I am a chair, no doubt, but I can also be a wooden purse, and that's something most people don't see right away.")
