It is a sea fan - a kind of coral. You can purchase them in many different sizes through sea shell distributors on the Web.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to 12 Occasional Chairs for All Occasions
Bohemian: Blogger sfgirlbybay's occasional chair works hard as a bookshelf when not accommodating someone's seating needs.
Amy Renea added this to Typography Makes Itself at Home
Perhaps the most classic way of incorporating typography into your space is with books. Stacked books, bookshelves of books, books without covers, book pages ... the list just goes on and on. Books are versatile, cheap and always lovely.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Create Page-Turning Design with Books
Do you cringe every time someone sits on your delicate, antique chair that’s been in your family for ages? Top it with books — it will simultaneously increase its visual attraction and longevity!
A faux fireplace can also frame an interesting accessory, like this chair with books piled on it. With so many ways to use them, I can't wait to have my own faux fireplace. Wish me luck! Do you have a faux fireplace? Please share a picture of it below. I'd love to see it!More:Make Your Fireplace the Focal PointDesign Details: Tiled Fireplace SurroundsSurround Your Fireplace With Brick, Tile or Stone
Lisa Frederick added this to Design 2012: Not Your Grandma's Antiques
Who couldn't use another spot to display books? If you have a chair that's too rickety to sit on, here's a great way to give it new life.

I like the books on the rustic chair. I should use the rustic chair that I swiped from our neighbors front lawn at night. Or maybe the chair thats back broke off. I could put a cute fabric over it maybe?
