Hard, cold, and totally uninviting, cement is quite possibly the last (or close to the last) material you would want your couch to be made out of. So why do we want this Drift Sofa by Fernando Mastrangelo so badly?
Maybe its the contrast between the plush purple velour and the craggy cement that makes this thing look so comfortable. Comfort wasn’t the only thing on Brooklyn based artist Fernando Maastrengelo’s mind when he built this piece, however. This sofa was part of a larger series that just finished up showing at Collective Design in New York City. Each piece exhibited at the venue was inspired by the color palette and feel of everything from the grand canyon to melting glaciers – all taken in by a trip he took with his good buddy down to Patagonia. If you are willing to drop some serious coin on this paradoxical piece of furniture, you can head to his site to inquire. [Purchase]
