DS-164 Sofa by Hugo de Ruiter

This modular seating idea by Hugo de Ruiter was inspired by nature and boasts expressive, sculptured lines. Available in a variety of colors the playful design of the DS 164, its escape from the thraldom of linear pattern liberates the living environment from the shackles of the humdrum.

It’s a very interesting piece of furniture that is definitely not following the traditional design of the sofa. It’s a different kind of sofa made for the same purposes: to make the users feel comfortable. But unlike the traditional designs, this one also looks interesting and intriguing.

Like any new idea or concept, at first people are reticent about it. They often have a hard time getting used to the idea, some of them don’t like it, others might like it but they prefer to stick with the old ones. This concept makes no exception. I’m also having a hard time imagining how this piece would look in my home. And I admit that it’s very interesting, but I still can’t find it very functional. Maybe with time things will change. But for now I would like to keep my old sofa.

The example presented here is white but there are also other colors, more bright and happy, for this design. Maybe some is all you need for a change of perspective.

Awesome Furniture Designs by Michel Haillard

I’m pretty sure that some of these designs from Michel Haillard are scary but in the same time are awesome. The idea from this furniture is from the hell, and to create this fantastic piece of furniture was used the most drastic materials starting from crocodile and ostrich skin and ending with horns and tusks of wild animals. Also it was created not without natural fur, which are covered inside cabinets and drawers. The frame and trim are made from wood, bronze and silver.

It’s a really radical furniture collection. I love each and every one of these pieces. I wish I could have them all. I’m not sure what I would be doing with all of them, but I want them. The designs are so original and artistic, and the image they create is so strong. They might be inspired by hell but for the owners they will look like heaven.

It’s a very creative and beautiful way of turning hell into something so amazing and exquisite. They might not be eco friendly and they also contain real fur, but who cares about that when they see how extremely beautiful these pieces are. I honestly love them. And I’m sure there are plenty of people who share the same feeling. It’s been a while since I’ve been so enthusiastic about s piece of furniture.

Inspired by the shape of traditional Japanese arcades, these stools are perfect for those who want a little more color in their living area.

The great thing about them is that their shape allows them to be stacked one on top of the other, making it easier for you to store them away when you’re using them. This way you can save quite a lot of space. The shape is not only appropriate when it comes to storage but it also contributes to your comfort. I would say they are more comfortable than the usual round shaped ones.

They might be small, because after all they are stools, but they are very comfortable and functional. They can be used in a variety of different ways and for a lot of different purposes. For example, when you’re not using them as a sitting place but instead you need a place to put your alarm clock when you’re going to bet, you can just use one of them as a nightstand. Because they are so colorful and bright, they will cheer you up in a second.

The Leash Sofa by Per Weiss

The Danish designer Per Weiss came up with the Leash Sofa which is part of Innovation’s 2010 “One Room Living” collection that they will exhibit at the upcoming 2010 IMM Cologne furnishing show in Germany. One of the most important furniture pieces in the living room is the sofa. The Leash Sofa will fit any modern room, for those who are locking for a sofa.

It has a very minimal base, just enough to keep those puffy cushions in place. That’s because the accent is on comfort. Just by looking at it you can say it’s extremely comfortable and soft. And after you sit on it, those suspicions are confirmed. The sofa comes in several color tones, like light brown, white and dark grey. It’s a beautiful piece of furniture, comfy and with a modern touch.

It’s a simple piece that is indispensable for any living room. It’s the focal center in that room, the first thing that everyone is looking for when entering in there. So since it’s such an important piece, it’s only natural that you pay a little more attention when choosing it. You’ll want it to be first of all comfortable, but equally good-looking and interesting. In this case, I think the Leash Sofa might be just right for you.

The P1 and P2 Chairs by Christel Hadiwibawa

P1 and P2 collection was designed by Australian designer Christel Hadiwibawa during his Graduate studies at the Canberra School of Art. The chairs are inspired by buildings across Asia that use bamboo scaffolding for its properties of strength, flexibility and durability. Both bamboo and concrete are durable materials suited to both the domestic and protected outdoor environment.

They are definitely two very interesting pieces. By interesting what I really mean is odd. They look very artistic, and they really are, but that’s not enough when it comes to basic furniture pieces that you see in every home. But let’s be open-minded and give this design a chance.

When you take a closer look at it you see that it has a very solid base. The bamboo is a very strong material, so it’s not that surprising that the designer was able to include it in his project. And because it’s also very flexible it makes a perfect candidate for this purpose. The chairs offer you a unique experience. They look very architectural, probably because, as mentioned before, they were inspired by buildings across Asia. If you’re looking for something unique, not necessarily traditional, that really makes an impression on anyone who sees it, then these two chairs could be the ones.

All the pieces from this collection have a very simple and neat design, but they are also very comfortable and soft, and that’s really all you need when you’re tired and all you want is a place where to rest your feet for a few minutes. They were designed for public spaces and you can tell that by the way they look like. That’s not a insult, it’s just a simple remark.

The pieces from this collection come in a very soft tone of grey, an extremely neutral tone.  This, together with the simplicity of the design and the clean lines give them a somewhat elegant look.  The design also has a modern flare, a fact that makes it perfect for a mall or other type of public structure.

Bamboo Chair by Jun Zi

The bamboo chair made by Jun Zi will undoubtedly look different from one made in Thailand, which will certainly not match one made in the United States. Made entirely of bamboo, with a simple geometric form, the chair is composed of rounded box-shaped frames made of bamboo slats. You should also know that the maximum load-bearing capacity for the chair is 200 kg.

The bamboo is a very strong material which makes it perfect for just about anything. It’s also very flexible which allows it to be bended and used to form all sorts of shapes and forms. This is what made possible for the designer of this chair to make it look so neat and to give it soft curved lines. You couldn’t do that with wood. You can do that with steel or other materials but the effect wouldn’t be the same.

This chair has a simple design, with no additional decorations and features that could make it exceptional. It’s the bamboo that does that. The lacquer finish brings out the beautiful natural color of the bamboo and also contributes to the chair’s resilience and durability. It’s amazing what you can do with just simple materials like these ones.
