Food-inspired furniture collections are trending at the moment, with top brands, including Moroso and Seletti, launching deliciously whimsical furnishings.
1 Hot Dog sofa and Burger chair from Seletti Wears Toiletpaper
The brand should probably throw a barbecue to launch its first soft furnishings this September. Debuting at Maison et Objet in Paris, the Hot Dog and Burger seats, designed by Studio Job as part of the UN_Limited Editions, are appropriately topped with tomato slice and pickle pillows. They’ll pair nicely with Seletti’s Egg rug and we suggest accessorizing with brand’s Banana lamp…for dessert.
2 Sushi Collection from Moroso
Dutch designer Edward Van Vliet recently updated his Sushi collection for Moroso with a new fabric called Ikebana, the Cubikoo low table, Marshmellow stool and, a new face-to-face bench version of the Juju armchair. Juju Rendezvous and the other new pieces are available in red, blue, green and grey colourways.
3 Onza tiles by MUT Design
Though the colour options for this tile collection are grey, terracotta and white, the inspiration is pure chocolate. Onza includes three candy–shaped ceramic pieces with invisible joints and can be configured in an endless number of patterns.
4 Cake Collection by Studio Pine
The Ukranian design firm is currently seeking a manufacturer for this line of curvaceous chairs and sofas, intended for hospitality settings such as restaurants, cafes and bars. Balanced on tubular chrome bases and upholstered in rich green velvet, the seats’ soft, rounded forms were inspired by a variety of round and oblong pastries.
5 Manet Easy Chair by BestBefore2065
Would you like fries with that? This Italian-made chair – which sees an MDF base stuffed with a cluster of soft, reconfigurable “stems” that allow the user to sit in a wild array of positions – would make an appropriate side for the new Seletti products. The base and the upholstery are both offered in a wide variety of colours.
