Tired of the same drab, one-tone furniture? Founders of Lumi Co. Jesse Genet and Stéphan Angoulvant design and produce furniture using a proprietary technology capable of impressing detailed imagery and artwork on nearly all natural materials ranging from cotton to leather, silk and wool.

The company gained notoriety on the online-fundraising site Kickstarter, and since surpassing its goal of $12,000 last year, has set up shop in select locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York.

However, as you can clearly see, this proprietary technology doesn't only apply to upholstery, but can also be reproduced on any number of natural material products including handbags, wallets and coasters, or stand alone as its own work of art. The complexity of some of these designs is also just astounding. I wouldn't mind some textile artwork on my apartment wall!
