When I chanced upon this set of furniture on the Contemporist, my eyes lit up in glee. I want them... its definitely going in my wishlist.
This set of chair, stool and ottoman, designed by Istanbul-based designer Meb Rure, are just, well, so cute! They are vibrant and bursting with color- ethnic and yet so very contemporary. They would work so well in a contemporary, minimalist setting, since they would add a burst of color and, I think, humor. I mean come on, don't they just bring a smile to your face?
The structure or wooden frame is made from American White Oak and the seat and back consists of sponge balls covered with waste silk fabric. All three pieces are designed so that they can be easily disassembled by unscrewing the legs so that transport is easy. The intention behind this being, to reduce the carbon footprint.
So tell me what you think. Do you like this set of colorful furniture as much as I do?
