The Truss Collection by Context Furniture was obviously inspired by architectural elements (trusses, to be exact). The collection includes tables, benches, chairs, and desks, all with an architectural spin.

The design of the Truss Collection is reminiscent of a bridge, or the steel frames of skyscrapers. Trusses are popular in architecture because they are unbelievably strong. Hopefully Context Furniture has brought that same stability to these pieces.

Implications - In recent years, there has been a new found passion for inventive home decor. With consumer's seeking originality, corporations can capitalize by investing in traditional items styled in a non-traditional manner. By putting this new spin on an old product, a brand can establish itself as a go-to company for chic residential creations.
