Hefer – his real last name — grew up in Johannesburg with a decidedly unartistic background. From high school athlete to army conscript to graphic designer, he eventually landed at Hunt Lascaris advertising as a commercial artist. From there, he evolved into his current work, armed with plenty of self-described “big ideas.” Hefer has said that his designs spring from a single question: Why does a chair have to be a chair? His collective works are a vivid representation of the fact that it doesn’t have to be.
When it comes to accent chairs, the idea is that they’re singular and stand out from other chairs in the house through their design which seamlessly combines looks with comfort. One such example is the Ficus chair. It has a clean and sleek design with a thin metal base and an undulating seat moulded after the human body. It’s like sitting in a blossoming flower.
As you can see, curved sofas can be quite tricky to work with but don’t let that discourage you. In a proper environment, each of the designs we showed you here can look amazing. Look for ways to make that happen. Let the curves of the sofa soften the harsh and angular lines of the surrounding decor and let it become a statement piece. You can reiterate its curves in a variety of forms in order to create a harmonious interior design. For instance, pair the sofa with a round top coffee table or with a circular area rug.
The role of an accent role in some cases is to become a visual focal point for the space and to direct the attention towards a particular spot. Sometimes that is ensured by a design that’s sculptural and just a little bit theatrical, like that of the Quinaquina chair. It’s a swivel chair with a circular wooden base and an octagonal body.
