For those looking to swap their standard sofa for something a bit more exquisite, consider the 'Croissant' sofa by designer Kenneth Cobonpue. This sofa is made up of natural fibers and materials woven into a large seating area.

The Croissant is made up of hundreds of woven coconut leaf cores; these cores are individually tied and woven by hand. An abaca rope is used to tie down the cores alongside translucent nylon wires and a steel frame that helps to maintain the sofa's shape. This sofa comes complete with matching cushions and pillows and is available in both an indoor-friendly version and an outdoor version that can withstand the weather.
