cerruti and seating, oh my!

if you are all about seating at the moment, whether contemplating transforming a residential or commercial space, or changing out just one piece you are tired of, cerruit's seating choices are plentiful and not only that, they are extraordinary!

how amazing is this "drop" armchair/sofa which had me at indoor & outdoor. that's right, depending on the fabric choice, the "drop" can be water resistant, with "water draining foam". well you'd need that right? another interesting tid bit about the "drop", the covers come off easily and the entire piece is convertible, easy to disassemble and transport. another interesting tid bit, it's gorgeous!
these "tatoo" cuties grabbed me and i couldn't help but form a smile on my face. they are both pouf and ottoman or maybe even a foot stool, but in a new way right? imprinted with various animal images such as this cat, or they have tigers, and texture like cactus thorns, etc. talk about throwing in a conversation piece to your spaces? ah, yeah, these would do it! cerruti calls them, flexible seating that will keep you company. how completely cute?

this super soft, cotton covered "group" seating with these unusual 3 elements/spaces, grouped together, as if sewn together and being held by the fabric alone. a space to recoup and reinterpret outlooks on design.

the "emmanuelle" chair is whispering to me. inviting me, softly offering a quiet stay in it's snow white cotton cover. i'll be right there!

this chair, titled the "little big" chair conveys a fabulous cantilever design, as if the seat itself is suspended in mid air. a curved plywood seat and tubular aluminum structure, here we go with texture, here we go with amazing!
i was especially and curiously drawn to these "sumo" pieces from cerruti. they appear as an extra skin, stretched over each piece, leaving you to guess in a way what is underneath. it's a mysterious piece, absolutely offering a bit of curious glam to your residential or commercial spaces.

offered by philippe starck for cerruti, this "richard III" chair is best described by cerruit as "the very essence of stereotypical middle~class decor, the object as a mask, a technological jack~in~the~box." don't you love that description? and this chair?

this wonderful "naked" chair, welded as if you were building the eiffel tower, it's applied engineering here folks. what i enjoy most about this piece is it's cross between rigid and soft, between welcoming the human body and carrying it's weight. also this "naked" piece offers a fabulous textural element to any space.

ooh, i'm out of breath. cerruti's seating took my breath away this morning. it even made my cheerios taste a little more shall we say, upscale? ;) enjoy this mid~week dose of chair deliciousness friends. i'm off for a run (didn't get one in yesterday, i'm fighting a cold! ick.) so this run will either do me in or cure me. hoping for the cure me part. bye for now...enjoy!
