Deciding on the furnishings to fill your home can either be enjoyable and exciting or difficult and tiresome. Picking a stylish and comfortable sofa is one of the biggest selection dilemmas that can radically change the look and feel of your living room.
You may like a certain type or design of furniture now, but may well change your mind and be stuck with a regrettable purchase. Going with a neutral option is a safe choice, but everybody wants a suite that oozes flair and impresses guests.
Therefore if you’re a bold individual that wants an audacious living space, you might be interested in some of the following unusual sofa designs.
Feel Seating System Deluxe by Animi Causa
Your first impression of this unusual object is likely to be confusion – understandable, as this abstract sofa is guaranteed to fascinate. Featuring 120 large but soft fabric balls made of foam, like a molecular structure, this sofa enables the user to manipulate and change their seating position.
You’ll comfortably sink into this molecular structure inspired sofa whether upright or lying down. Lauded by architects and interior designers, this particularly flexible couch boasts customers such as Google, ABC News, EA Games, L’Oréal and Unicef.
FlexibleLove Earth 16
When it comes to choosing a sofa, few consider the environmental impact the manufacturing process has had. However, FlexibleLove’s peculiar seating solution is made entirely from 100 per cent post-consumer recycled cardboard paper and post-industrial recycled wood waste.
The company prides itself on using simple wood and paper, therefore doing away with traditional materials like leather, fabric, wood or metal frames. The product’s unique and extraordinary concertina effect enables it to be manipulated in a variety of different ways depending on the consumer’s requirements. It can also be folded and stored away if you need some extra space.
While the Earth 16’s comfort may not rival that of traditional sofas, the design and materials alone make this a hugely desirable purchase.
Squint Limited’s range of colourful and vibrant pieces certainly stands out from your regular sofa design. Creator Lisa Whatmough’s bespoke settees and armchairs are clearly inspired by a love of art, textiles and patchwork. At first glance the collection on offer is strikingly bright, however with this range of furniture largely being made to order, even the most conservative colour connoisseur will be satisfied.
Nearly all furniture is produced by second or third generation manufacturers, which specialise in classical and contemporary upholstered furniture, guaranteeing a quality look and feel.
Bonbon Doc Sofa Bunk Bed
Sofa beds are a great solution if you want a living space to double as a guest bedroom. Although once thought of as uncomfortable, ugly and flimsy, several of the most reliable sofa beds you can buy now feature fantastic design and proper mattresses.
However if you’re having more than one person coming to stay and need separate beds, Bonbon’s Doc might be the ideal solution.
While functioning a sofa, it is a fairly standard design but still remains crisp, clean-cut and smart. However with one simple movement the sofa transforms into a bunk bed featuring wooden slatted bases and a ladder. It is simple, easy, effective and extremely innovative.
While this sofa has a more mainstream if not retro vibe, you cannot deny its uniqueness. It was inspired by the traditional Moroccan footstool, as can be seen in its sunken bucket seat and quilted upholstery.
Its sleek edges and rounded design differ from the majority of a sofa designs, but you still yearn to collapse on to its welcoming shape.
Cous Home Sweet Home
Yet another retro sofa with a modern twist, the Home Sweet Home by Cousis is a stunning design that features an almost enclosed shell with enticing soft furnishings.
The sofa’s shell is made from high-density coated and varnished fibreboard while the PU-foam upholstery is covered with removable leather. The temptation to climb inside and shut yourself off from the outside world is overwhelming.
Flavour Design Savon
If you enjoy a nice relaxing bath but never want to get out, this might be the sofa for you. Made from an antique claw-foot cast-iron bathtub with icy blue sensuede upholstery, lengths vary from four to six feet. Every single piece is unique, as will be the experience of watching television from the tub.
