Fornasetti furniture

Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 11,000 products. In terms of variety of decoration, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the largest of the 20th century. He is celebrated as being among the most original creative talents of the twentieth century. During his career he created a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable and unceasingly engaging. Fornasetti designed a magical world, saturated in image and colour and filled with whimsy and wit. I've put these images on here because i want to try doing something similar with a chair that features a face. I was thinking of printing the face of a pretty fairytale character i.e Snow White onto one side of the chair (like the above image) and then print a face of an evil/ugly character i.e the Wicked Witch on the other side of the chair so then when it is placed in front of a mirror, you can see both faces. This would then interpret the 'mirror, mirror on the wall...' scene from Snow White...I would also print these words around the mirror above the reflection.
