Curvaceous Couches

Reading through my New York Spaces magazine this weekend, I came across this curvey sofa. The color, pattern and shape caught my eye, so I decided to see what else I could find. Below are some interesting examples.

That last sofa is crazy! While amusing, I think whoever buys it has too muck money.

I couldn't resist throwing that one in, Tammy!

I know, Christine, but think of the floor space you save. ; )

These are crazy...can you imagine putting one in your home. Thanks for coming by , always nice to hear from you.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

@ Room Service, it would seem a bit like a reception area. The first one makes me think of a hotel lobby or bar. Thank you! Likewise! : )

Is that last one for real? Too funny! ~Tracy

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

It's kind of like an art piece and seating in one, Tiaa!

You and me both, Jane. It would be interesting to see a spread in a magazine with that last one with a why they used it.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I thought it was different, Amanda! I'm guessing it wouldn't work too well in an open concept living space.

I probably looked at that picture the longest, Tracy! I'll bet that's a real conversation piece.

Your de-flowered headline was awesome! Thanks for your comment. That climbing sofa was funny to see!

That last sofa is actually kinda creepy -- it looks like a big bug climbing up the wall!!

The other ones are far less creepy :-) The pink one in in the first picture is quite cool, in fact :-)

Awesome furniture. LOVE the climbing sofa!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks, Maria! I love reading the responses to that climbing sofa.

It was the pink one that started this post, Kelly! It did catch my eye, too. That last one doe seem like something out of the Adam Family or even Beetlejuice. I don't even want to know the price of this one!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

@ Red House Happenings ~ this seems to be a laugh at or hate it kind of sofa! Totally impractical, but definitely a conversation starter!

Lorna said...

Love them all but esp the first and last :-)
