Homeowners looking to infuse some fun and lighthearted touches to their interior decor are in luck, because these playful furniture pieces will definitely make you feel like a kid again.

While most people tend to buy pieces of furniture based on size and practicality, these playful designs are more for individuals who are looking for something interactive and fun to play with. Why go for an ordinary run-of-the-mill couch or chair when you can have one that is shaped like a piece of fruit or can easily transform from one shape to another?

From colorful customizable sofa designs to adjustable foam ball seating, these playful furniture pieces will definitely add a unique and child-like touch to any room of your home.
