Settanta Collection

I've been quite obsessed with this idea of all white - white walls, white rug, white funiture. White, white, white. 

Then I look at my almost 2 year old son. Obsession shattered.

Thank you Saba Italia for this beautiful visual indulgence.

The Vesna Lounge Sofa aims to render the same form of comfort you would expect from the usual ones for relaxation or even perhaps sleep.

This eye-catching sculptural piece is fluid in both form and movement as it flexes and bends to the user to make them feel so snug and comfy the designers at Nuvist even describe it as the “ultimate relaxation getaway.”

The Infinity Bench

At a glance, this bench likes the familiar mold of a fallen tree or may be an inverted canoe even. But the Infinity Bench is really more than that. It is another one of these odd solutions that aim to provide functional seating for people looking to spice up their homes, with focus on the outdoor setting.

Thank you to Prooff for understanding.
