Patchwork is most often associated with quilts. Once a craft born out of economic necessity, patchwork quilts still enjoy widespread popularity. However, British designer Lisa Whatmough whose company is Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique not for familar bedcoverings but as upholstery material for her fun and funky bespoke furniture line. Just one of her chic furniture pieces will brighten up any dark corner. These are extraordinarily vivid focal pieces indeed.

Cor furniture takes lounging into another level, by introducing their new Lava Sofa. In collaboration with designers Kristen Antje Hoppert and Steffen Kroll of Studop Vertijet, Core furniture’s Lava Sofa has so many things to offer. The “Lava” is so many things, “a work of art and a piece of sitting-reclining lounge furniture at the same time, the concept of Lava is as diverse as its uses”. The possibilities are endless as the vertical variance reaches down to the floor as soft, upholstered mats transform even this surface into part of the furniture.

Remember your grandmother’s Chesterfield couch? Old fashioned floral fabric and frills may have put you off but those buttons were a nifty design feature.

The „Sitscape“ is a seating zone with a length of six meters. The form transforms the usual use of a couch. The design is based on specific seating positions and smooth transformations between them. Based on the preferred relaxing positions of the client we generated six basic positions and formed a perfect fit for them in the “Sitscape”. Consequently, the “Sitscape” provides familiar possibilities for relaxing. The transitional areas between these positions are undetermined in their use

These two pieces, the rocking chair, and the love seat are designed by Scott Wilson and they are from its new line of sofas and chairs called Purity. The designs are characterized by highly pronounced curves. Their structure is made of steel so that adds strength and durability and are also covered with a mesh of polyurethane. Finally these pieces look very modern, to bad they are just concepts for now …and one thing that I could add is that the rocking chair would definitely need arm rests, rockers really need arm rests.

Phantom couch has a very interesting design. At a first glance this couch might look like a broken bathtub that was transformed into a couch. Phantom is a semi-transparent couch, luminescent, and colorful : the body is a sheet of milky PMMA resting on a tubular framework in chromed steel. Some people use large pieces of furniture to hide stuff, or to cover something, with the phantom couch this is not possible, because this couch is like a phantom - invisible. The price for this interesting design is a little bit high £3019.20 at Madeindesign.

SKiN Sofa is designed by Jean Nouve a French architect. As you can see from this picture this sofa has a very simple but innovating design. SKiN adopts innovative technical ideas such as the supporting structure in tubular pretensioned steel which holds another structural element, the cover in double-sided leather with its self-modelling geometric incisions. I like this sofa because if you want to move it this will be very easy, and I’m sure that one person can do the job. The only thing that I’m concerned is when I’ll have a heavier guest … who knows when can happend with that leather. This sofa will be available from January 2008 here.
