After starting with nests, Hefer’s work evolved into animal-shaped forms that are playful and comfortable. The figures invite people to climb into the comfy seat through the wide open mouth of the beast. From toothy crocodiles to killer whales, tigers and toucans – the “Monstera Deliciosa” collection, along with other assorted creatures, is a menagerie of inviting, cheeky beasts. Despite the large teeth inside the gaping maw of these works, they are still comfortable nests, beckoning you to crawl in and curl up.
Chairs….we know a lot about them since they’re basically in every home but there’s always so much t be surprised by when it comes to their designs or even the types of chairs that one can choose from. Today we want to talk about that one chair that’s special, that stands out from all the others, that has its own special place in your home. We’ll look at a few designs and options and we’ll try to offer you some suggestions in terms of how you can make the most of each accent chair.
You can always position a curved sofa or sectional in a corner in which case you’ll be left with an empty little space behind it. You can fill that with a floor lamp, a tall plant or some other suitable accent piece or decoration. Another option is to include the sofa or sectional in a circular grouping. Maybe you could pair it with a couple of armchairs or poufs to complete the circle or you could have it face a fireplace. Also, if possible, it would be nice to have the sofa or sectional placed across from a focal point or a window with a nice view.
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.
