55 Origami-Inspired Furnishings

From Intricate Origami Dining Sets to Folding Felt Lighting

— October 23, 2013 — Art & Design
These origami-inspired furnishings are perfect for any homeowner looking to add some artistic appeal to their home.

Origami consists of the beautifully intricate technique of folding ordinary paper into abstract and often carefully detailed designs and shapes. And by infusing origami techniques into ordinary furnishings, designers are able to create wonderfully whimsical features that appear to be curved and shaped in meticulously detailed ways. From minimalist origami lights to folded frame seating and foldable cardboard furnishings, these origami-inspired designs will definitely add a creative touch to any interior decor.

Perfect for those who enjoy the appearance of carefully crafted objects and abstract designs, these origami-inspired furnishings will definitely add some unique geometric touches to any home.
