Tony Terranova forwarded these images of a chair made of cents designed by Vermont artist Johnny Swing, taken at an antique show in New York city this week. Thanks!
The artist is well known for his similar furniture made from nickles and quarters. He first made two of these circa 1991 from pennies, but they were to difficult to work with so the rest of his output is of the latter. He's extremely well known in design circles.
