Trompe-l’Oeil Upholstered Chairs
January 16, 2012 by Robin Plaskoff Horton
Nope, it just looks like upholstery. In a whimsical nod to upholstered furniture, Italian design company Skitch offers its FildeFer polyester coated iron collection of indoor/outdoor chairs, sofa, table, and coffee table.
Fil de Fer is French for iron wire–the kind you might twist into a shape as designer Alessandra Baldereschi has done with her amusing line of furniture that looks like she literally brought her sketches to life. Like a pencil drawing, a thin iron rod creates the curved lines resulting in an upholstery effect.
