Richard Woods and Sebastian Wrong like to play tricks with bricks. They collaborated on a series of chairs and sofas for the British company Established & Sons. The furniture isn’t made of bricks and mortar; the upholstery uses a screen printed fabric giving the user a comfortable embrace rather than a brick in the behind.

Implications - Designers are playing with the aesthetics of interior pieces to establish an element of quirkiness in the home. Thus, couches, chairs and tables are being released bearing the oddest of inspirations, such as the Estavlished & Sons brick chair. This serves as a tale to other companies to ensure an element of fantasy is instilled in all products.
