This furniture is made with Japanese influences by Swedish design firm 'Claesson Koivisto Rune' who creates it for Italian furniture manufacturer 'Arflex.'

The collection is titled 'Bonsai' -- an artistic planting technique that is unique to Japan. The furniture pieces consist of seating as well as a foot-rest that are both curved in their shape and offered in rich green, deep blue and pastel blue colors. The rounded shapes of these pieces embody a Japanese influence -- as they were inspired by the rounded bushes and shrubs that are found in Japanese gardens.

These furniture pieces are quirky and their cultural inspiration makes them stand out in a market that can often be oversaturated with more traditional products.
