View all 11 Photos

Designed by Torafu Architects and manufactured by Hida Sangyo, the Cobrina series is a collection of petite furniture. The series includes a coat rack, chairs, a loveseat, tables, stools, and shelves. all made of wood and finished with the buyer’s pick of paint or natural gloss. The tree-inspired coat rack stands out from the crowd. At its top, it has a “nest” for catching baubles or keys, reducing clutter with a bird’s touch. The low-backed chairs fit under the table and are made with one’s choice flat or inverted seats, with or without upholstering. The loveseat has similar design and is upholstered in colors such as slate and cornflower blue. The tables, stools, and shelves share the loveseat’s rounded edges and are lightweight, which lends the pieces to fluid arrangement in small spaces.
