Copenhagen-based designer Ellinor Ericsson recently created a colorful set of gigantic furniture that features fun cross-stitch patterns. Ericsson felt that Nordic furniture designs often lack interesting ornaments and colorful decoration. She thus created the cross-stitched set as a way of adding a touch of whimsy to contemporary Nordic designs.

The colorful furniture is a blend of both Rococo elements and Nordic designs. Each oversized piece features fun cross-stitch patterns that have been woven into the birch wood frame. The stitching is made from wool and is woven in a Scandinavian-inspired pattern. The shape of the furniture itself is modeled after classic Rococo designs. These two elements combine to perfectly balance the two distinct styles.

The whimsical pieces manage to bring together contemporary design with quirky decoration to create a wholly unique set of furniture.
