                                To mark their 20th anniversary of successful collaborations, <a href="http://www.patriciaurquiola.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Patricia Urquiola</a> designed the <a href="http://moroso.it/prodotti/chamfer/?lang=en"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Chamfer Sofa</a> for <a href="http://moroso.it/?lang=en"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Moroso</a>. The unique design features chamfered corners, removing the 90-degree back angles found on most traditional sofas. The angled corners give a welcoming feeling to anyone that sits down, almost like a hug.
Chamfer consists of five modules that vary in length and depth, and a connector, that join together to form any number of configurations desired, from a simple two-seater sofa to a geometrical formation that could seat a dozen plus.

They&#8217;re breaking the collection down into three time periods – 50-60s, 70-80s, and the 90-00s – which will launch on three separate dates in 2018. Each period is quite different but you&#8217;ll get a peek into IKEA&#8217;s past through its 7+ decades in business.
The 50-60s Edition launches this month with a series of classic pieces in darker woods that were a reflection of the times. The triangular LÖVBACKEN became the company’s first flat-packed product after an IKEA worker thought to remove a table’s legs to get it into his tiny car. Launching in October, the colorful 70-80s Edition is

It’s a Party with Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis’ Confetti Range for DesignByThem

                                Any collection that’s able to find a way to reuse plastic to create functional furniture deserves a party. Designed by <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/vendors?q=nicholas+karlovasitis+%26+sarah+gibson" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis</a> for <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">DesignByThem</a>, the new <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/confetti" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Confetti Range</a> consists of tables, stools, benches, planters, armchairs, booths and lounges that use 100% recycled plastic, resulting in a collection that is fun and environmentally-friendly.
The recycled material is made up of 100% post-consumer and factory waste that is formed into tubes with no added fillers. The plastic components of each piece are extremely durable, easy to clean, and have a confetti-like pattern that we think can be seen as a modern, eco-friendly alternative to terrazzo. To see more of the Confetti Range, visit DesignByThem.

Rectangular cushions rest within the structures ensuring that they stay put.

The Furrow sofa, which was originally dressed in a reddish-brown leather, is now covered in glossy black tattooed leather with stitching resembling scars and sutures. It is reminiscent of both a worn-in leather jacket and the exterior profile of a rugged individual who lets the art on his arm speak for his stories. The Barrow coffee table is redesigned with dark beech wood and black leather on the handles and wheels, a dark contrast to the

A Modern, Folding Sofa Made from Two Belts, a Frame, and a Cushion

                                When you have a compact living space or you live in a rental, smaller, easy-to-transport furniture is essential. Knowing you&#8217;re moving again in six months and you have a massive sofa that weighs enough to require 3-4 people to move it, can be stressful and expensive. Kunikazu Hamanishi, of <a href="http://hamanishi.net/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hamanishi DESIGN</a>, designed <a href="http://hamanishi.net/work/blanco/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Blanco</a> as a smarter alternative. The two-seater folding sofa easily comes together with a simple tubular frame, cushion, and two leather belts that result in a comfortable, stylish sit.
The Blanco comes flat-packed, which means you can also take it apart when the time comes to move. It assembles in a matter of minutes with its cushion attaching to the X-shaped frame with the help of rods. After it’s secured, the belts tighten and help keep the frame’s shape while also adding a distinct design element. Photography by Ryoukan Abe.

12 Dreamy Velvet Sofas You’ll Love

We hope you like the products we recommend. Just so you are aware, Freshome may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

Velvet sofas have found their way back into our living rooms. Once thought of as formal, velvet sofas and chairs had a renaissance in the 1960s when global decor was hot and earth tones ruled. 

Your velvet sofa can be a statement piece that you decorate around, rather than a predictable staple in your living room. This is your chance to lose the beige couch and dated accent pillows.  The new velvet sofas are often rich with jewel tones like royal blue and emerald green, but pastel colors are popping up in our living rooms, too. Here are some of our favorite velvet sofas in luscious colors: 

Velvet Sofas in Jewel Tones

Tokio is a modular seating system that appears to hover above the floor. The oversized seats offer comfort with low backs for optimal lounging. The overstuffed cushions offer a curvy yet sculpted appearance completely void of any hard corners or elements. The configuration can be decided on by the user, as there are plenty of options, from a freestanding island in the center of the room to a regular two- or three-seater sofa. The Infinity coffee table boasts a base inspired by the mathematical symbol for infinity, hence the table’s name.

Kjær’s goal was to design a line of furniture that felt like a natural extension of the architecture surrounding it, paying careful attention to scale so it felt balanced. She also placed importance on designing the furniture so that it would last in the outdoors through rain, wind, sun, and snow. Indoor-Outdoor comes in solid teak that will age beautifully and it requires very little maintenance. The collection includes a dining chair, lounge chair, two-seater lounge sofa, swing sofa, a sunbed,

                                If you&#8217;ve ever had a friend or loved one in the hospital for any length of time, you know just how awful the accommodations are for guests – either they&#8217;re uncomfortable straight chairs that are impossible to get comfortable in or possibly a stiff recliner that isn&#8217;t much better. <a href="https://www.steelcase.com/research/topics/healthcare/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Steelcase Health</a> is working to change that with new and innovative designs like <a href="https://www.steelcase.com/products/sofas-sleepers/surround/#features_animation"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Surround</a>, a sofa system designed for visiting guests. The collection is made to support family members while they&#8217;re staying in a patient&#8217;s room. The design works as a sofa or sleep surface with helpful features, like an integrated sliding table for working or eating, an ambient light for reading, a high recline arm to lean back on, layered storage for personal items, a tray for photos or get well cards, and a coat hook – all thoughtful details aimed at making things comfortable during a difficult time. <div class="post-limited-image"><img class="alignnone size-large wp-image-345318" src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-810x506.jpg" alt="" width="810" height="506" srcset="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-810x506.jpg 810w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-800x500.jpg 800w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-768x480.jpg 768w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1-500x313.jpg 500w, https://design-milk.com/images/2018/06/Decon-Surround-Steelcase-Health-1.jpg 1280w" sizes="(max-width: 810px) 100vw, 810px" /></div>

The new collection includes 12 new pieces, ranging from vases, side tables, lounge chairs and much more.
Julep designed by Jonas Wagell includes a sofa, armchair, chaise-lounge, and ottoman. The collection immediately draws the viewer’s eyes to its soft curves and fully upholstered structure. A recessed base lifts each piece off the floor to convey a sense of lightness. Wagell also added a straight-front 3-seat sofa to the Roma collection of seating inspired by Italian mid-century design. This line is defined by its clean, simple lines and balanced proportions. Lina is a re-edition of an armchair designed by Gianfanco Frattini that features an unusual wooden frame where the same bent plywood element that supports the side of the seat also curves up to support the armrests. Memory Lane designed by Christophe Pillet

Ligne Roset and Sunbrella Come Together for the Ottoman Outdoor Collection by

                                French furniture and lifestyle brand <a href="https://www.ligne-roset.com/us/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Ligne Roset</a> recently partnered with textile brand <a href="https://www.sunbrella.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Sunbrella</a> on an outdoor seating collection designed by <a href="http://noeduchaufourlawrance.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance</a>. Inspired by the traditional Moroccan footstool, the <a href="https://www.ligne-roset.com/us/modele/living/sofas/ottoman/1700"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">original Ottoman collection</a> was for indoor use and now through a new partnership with Sunbrella, they&#8217;ve reimagined it for outdoor use.
The Ottoman Outdoor collection comes in new options of Sunbrella fabrics, which are breathable, UV/fade resistant, stain resistant, mold/mildew resistant, and can be cleaned with bleach. The pieces are even outfitted with a hidden drain where the backrest and the seat connect so water doesn’t pool up. The collaboration recently launched at WantedDesign during NYCxDESIGN 2018 through a nature-inspired presentation of winding gardens and brickwork.

MARK Product and Studiomama Team Up to Launch Loops Furniture

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/mark-product-and-studiomama-team-up-to-launch-loops-furniture/markproduct_loops-studiomama-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/05/MarkProduct_Loops-Studiomama-1-810x540.jpg" alt="MARK Product and Studiomama Team Up to Launch Loops Furniture" /></a>
                                Back in 2012, Nina Tolstrup of <a href="http://www.studiomama.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Studiomama</a> created a <a href="http://www.studiomama.com/re-imagine-collection"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">collection</a> of furniture from discarded chairs found on the streets. After lots of work, the freshly born chairs helped take trash off the streets and gave new life to something overlooked. Fast forward to 2017 when Cornish-based furniture brand <a href="http://www.markproduct.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">MARK Product</a> came onboard as a manufacturing partner for a round of dining chairs for a London hotel. They loved the initial series and the dining chairs so they asked Studiomama to expand the range and now they have an entire furniture collection called <a href="http://www.markproduct.com/products/loops/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Loops</a>.
Loops gets its name from both the signature “loops” in each design and the nature of the story behind it – the cycle of new chair to old chair to trash to its new, reimagined chair. The range features lounge furniture –  sofas, chairs, armchairs, and coffee tables – along with dining furniture – benches, stools, and
