Comfortable and funny seats for Baleri Italia

What could be more fun than a bunch of spheres, balls or other funny shaped stools in your home? Meet the Tato family. It’s a collection designed by Enrico Baleri and Denis Santachiara for Baleri Italia and it basically consists of a series of polyurethane spheres, ovals and other shapes that can be used either as stools of footrests. I would say that, given their shape and softness, they would also make a very cute and interesting addition to the children’s room.

The pieces are surprisingly comfortable and they are both fun and cozy. They are available in polyamide stretch fabric (or magala wool) or stretch wool fabric and the covers are easily removable for cleaning or replacement. This also means that you can have multiple covers of different colors and replace them whenever you get bored. You can buy them separately.

As for the dimensions, they vary. The pieces have distinct names, according to their size and shape. So there’s tatino that measures 19″dia, 17″h, tato – 25.6″d x 17.3″w x 17.7″h, tatone – 30.7″dia, 14″h, tato bean – 21.5″d x 41.3″w x 15.6″ h, bonbon – 18″d x 38.2″w x 15.6″h and lunella – 23″dia x 7.7″h. I personally find these pieces very cute and fun and I would love to have them in my home.Available here.
