This sofa is not for everybody; youâ€™ll need some space if you are going to buy it. Designed by Joaquim Tenreiro of Brazil, the upholstered chair sits atop an expansive jacaranda frame, with green glass tops flanking each armrest. Itâ€™s big, modern and beautiful.
Patchwork is most often associated with quilts. Once a craft born out of economic necessity, patchwork quilts still enjoy widespread popularity. However, British designer Lisa Whatmough of Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique as upholstery material for her fun and funky bespoke furniture line. Just one of her chic furniture pieces will brighten up any dark corner. These are extraordinarily vivid focal pieces.
The Volant Sofa was designed by Patricia Urquiola; the range also includes an armchair, a chair and a stool. The frame of the base is a trapezoid, which adapts to the line of the back and seat. This leads to a dichotomy between regularity and irregularity, flat and curved, basic and frilly.
