British artist James Hopkins blurs the lines between decor and art with his furniture artworks. He carefully constructs installations with mundane everyday objects, transforming them into artwork installations with hidden messages.

The 'Love Seat' artwork for example is constructed from four different chair designs that collectively spell LOVE, but can only seat three people. A hidden message for a threesome? "Even though my work often contains design elements, ironically they work in opposition to accommodating the body. My favourite part of the 'Love Seat' sculpture is the letter O because on that chair the seat is missing." Stats for Decor As Art with Hidden Messages Trending: Older & Chilly
