These sewing furniture pieces flaunt inpiration from a range of intricate needlecrafts like sewing, embroidery and cross stitching, turning ordinarily decorative embellishments into functional design elements.

When it comes to fabric furniture pieces, stitches are a subtle, but essential part of construction, although they most often go unnoticed. Some of these designs bring stitches to the forefront, making them much more prominent parts of the design. Others bring a playful take to furniture by turning sewing tools into giant pin cushion seats and oversized spools of thread for people to sit on.
