Juliet by Benjamin Hubert for Poltrona Frau was inspired by the Italian renaissance fashion detail called the “Juliet sleeve” – a sleeve that fits the arm tightly and has a large de-constructed ‘puff’ on the shoulder. Juliet’s leather upholstery is ‘tri-pleated’ and utilizes the flexibility and tensile strength of leather.
Blue Slumber Pouf
Sit on them and they hug you, stand up and they spring back to their original form. These cute poufs have a striking light/dark texture that remind you of knitting. It is, however, a woven cover! Three dimensional stretch fabrics are in fact the specialty of Aleksandra Gaca. For this cover she chose a caress-soft option in high-quality Kid Mohair, mixed with top quality merino wool. The poufs and matching throws are available in 12 tints, naturals as well as distinctive fashionable shades. Tip: all the colours co-ordinate perfectly with the Carpet Collection from the Belgian manufacturer, Casalis. Choose between two sizes: Slumber small and Slumber large.

Is it just me, or do I see it correctly Versace is going with the flow to go back to home based design like quilting knitting or crochet with this multi colored Bubble Sofa?
Conform chairs by New York-based artist and industrial designer William Lee are part of new work that was geometrically inspired. At first sight, these cube-like frames don’t even look like chairs. The minimalist creations are made of simple frames in neon green or pink and stretched woven elastic seats that “conform” to the body, hence the chairs’ name.
