In this week’s blog, we’re featuring some of the craziest couches from across the globe… Who would have thought sofas could be so much fun?!
Flying Carpet Couch
“East Meets West,” often referred to as the “Flying Carpet Couch” looks like it flew straight out of Disney’s animated musical fantasy film Aladdin! This couch was designed by Tonio de Roover and originated in the Netherlands.
It makes you want to jump right in, doesn’t it? This sofa was designed for an ad campaign by the swimming pool design company Piscine Castiglione near Milan.
Isn’t this Tiger Couch grrrrreat?! This couch originated in Rome and was designed by Rodolfo Rocchetti.
Bet you didn’t see this one coming! This giant lawn sofa is one of nearly a dozen “open-air sitting rooms” in the British Isles. These were created after a study was released showing that families were spending almost 43 hours a week sitting on the couch. These “sittings rooms” are meant to encourage families to head outdoors – even if they continue to be couch potatoes!
Talk about a two for one! This vintage “Snooker Sofa” was created in the United Kingdom in the 1970′s and was sold as a limited edition piece. It was upholstered by a company called Accrington and manufactured by the company Riley. Pretty neat, huh?
