Swithy by Two.Six, a furniture brand based in Portugal, is a stool that takes the focus away from experimental furniture silhouettes by placing it on something a lot more comfortable: cushions. Instead of making the seat eye-catching in a sculptural or quirky way, the surface of Swithy by Two.Six is covered in frilly fabric that adds an exciting touch of texture to the overall design.

Contrasting nicely with the smooth wood of its base, the cushion of Swithy by Two.Six has an organic appeal as well as a decorative one. It is made out of burel, which is a highly resistant and durable traditional Portuguese fabric made from wool. The overall shape is inspired by the female body.
