Typically, the back is all one continuous piece without cushions and has an elegant curving line. This particular cabriole version includes jewels in the tufts for added glamour. It is a sofa style that can be as simple or opulent as you desire. Upholstered with a luxury material like velvet yields a much different design feeling than if it were upholstered in a more muted, textural neutral. The main aura of elegance derives from its overall shape and lithe legs meaning it will always lend a refined air to a room.
What about designs that are actually pretty common-looking and simple? They can be awesome too. This, for example, is a Cinova armchair and it’s one of the most comfortable-looking chairs ever. It’s also simple and classic enough to look exquisite in pretty much any type of living room, office or bedroom.
No matter what form his work takes, it is part of an ever-growing artistic movement celebrating individualistic hand-crafted pieces as an antidote to today’s mass production. The mastery of different materials and the high level of workmanship is evident in the details on all his chairs. For example, mere stitching between the sections of leather is elevated to an important design detail on all the seats.
They’re quirky and cozy, but the whimsical air of works by artist Porky Hefer belies the deeper meaning of the hanging seats he creates. From animal shapes to ovate seats woven from various materials, the “nests” that the South African artist designs are definitely conversation pieces. The materials he uses, the craftspeople who contribute their skills and the underlying inspiration make these more than simple hanging seats.
