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 of Squint Limited has adapted the patchwork technique 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.
There is no way you can miss the Canape sofa by Lila Lang. One half is an old-fashioned, curvy style; the other half appears to be climbing the wall. You have to admit there is something whimsical about this design. On one hand, it fulfills a function (a place to sit); on the other hand, it’s a piece of art. If you tilt your head and view the wall as the floor, you will notice the piece is almost symmetrical so it can fit right or left corners. This design was featured in an exhibition (Parcours Saint Germaine) in Paris.
