Avery Janella. Sofa. May 08th , 2018.
The Yang Sofa can be interlocked to form a sofa or a sectional. You can create a range of different groupings using up to four left- or right-arm sofas. Designer Francois Bauchet created this brilliant sofa for Ligne Roset.
The folks at Coffin Couches have managed to transform 18-gauge steel coffins (from funeral homes in Southern California) into designer Coffin Couches. At first, these sofas look like a luxurious piece of leather furniture until you realize they are made from actual coffins. Fans of “The Addams Family” will love them.
Remember your grandmother’s Chesterfield couch? Its old-fashioned floral fabric and frills may have put you off, but those buttons were a nifty design feature. Well, now you can have your own updated version. The Star System of modern sofas shown here were designed by Enrico Buscemi and Piergiorgio Leone and presented at the Milan Furniture Fair. They are part of the Giovannetti Collezioni, known for its innovative furniture design. It is easy to see why they called their collection the Star System, because those buttons are reminiscent of stars at night.
At first glance, the Phantom Couch might look like a broken bathtub that was made into a couch. The semi-transparent body, luminescent and colorful, is a sheet of milky PMMA resting on a tubular framework of chromed steel. Some people use large pieces of furniture to hide or cover up things; but with the Phantom, this is not possible.
