Fun and Imaginative Furniture

Put a smile on your face every day with these fun and beautifully designed pieces, mostly chairs. Some designed in the 1970’s and others last year, they offer comfort and add style and whimsey to any interior. With forms that recall earlier times, childhood characters, animals, and/or fruits–use your imagination to enjoy them however you see them.



Designed by Erberto Carboni in 1954.

Delfino means dolphin in English. See the dolphin forms in these chairs? Playful and energetic like dolphins.

Delfino is an example of “organic” furniture of the Fabulous 1950’s, which took its inspiration from forms found in nature. It reflects the optimism of the post-war years, featuring typical sleek and streamlined silhouettes with thin legs and organic, rounded shapes.

arflex’s Botolo chair was designed by Cini Boeri in 1973, giving life to a new design style where you could choose the height of the legs to have a dining chair in the High version, or a Low version, popular at the time of “living at a low” level when conversation pits were in vogue. There are wheels in the legs to move easily and glide across the floor.

Fun and sophisticated, Botolo emphasizes self -expression, freedom and individuality.
Notice the three legs and wide range of style variations from leather to fabric to fur and beyond.

Placed together, they almost seem to be talking to each other, in conversation making them truly conversation pieces.

Also from arflex and designed by Cini Boeri, Pecorelle armchair reflects how nature prevails and becomes the inspiring muse of this new piece of design.
It was inspired by Christo Vladimirov Javasev’s and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon’s works, masters in the art of wrapping nature–see its roots here with the chair wrapped in sheep’s clothing.

arflex’s Yuzu chair is animated almost like a Japanese character, so cute and small in scale but big in personality. Comfortable, practical, and uplifting. Always a favorite. The name comes from the Asian fruit yuzu.

Waltz, designed by duo GamFratesi, is a modular wall coat hanger, inspired by the ballroom dance it’s named after. Waltz can be creatively placed on the wall any way you like, placed on the same axis or flipped upside down. Playful, with lots of movement, and highlighting the nature of bent wood and the process of using it in design.
Each piece fits into the next to create images and shapes on the wall and mimics the tracing movement of two dancers on the dance floor.
