Psychedelic Noelle Sofa by Pinch Design and Timorous Beasties

View all 4 Photos

This Noelle Sofa by Pinch Design recently got the Graffito Velvet treatment for its debut at Maison & Objet 2015. The plain white couch was originally created by the London-based studio Pinch Design, whose sweet wooden furniture was previously covered on GBlog. But its story doesn’t end there. The Scottish designers Timorous Beasties revised the design, drenching it in colorful swirls, splatters, and drips of paint. The psychedelic detailing gives the otherwise minimalist design a fresh wave of energy, making the quality furniture appeal to new aesthetics.
