The East Meets West sofa by Tonio de Roover fuses oriental carpets with the fluidity of western sofa aesthetic, resulting in a cool sofa for those who love carpets but do not want to sit on the floor.

The artistic patterns of the carpets add a rich dimension to the sofa that you can not get with normal fabrics.

Implications - The globalization of mainstream culture has enabled homeowners to adopt aesthetic cues from different countries into their interior design scheme. Creatives are taking advantage of this opportunity by creating fusion furniture that blends global iconography into a single functional piece. This niche of multicultural decor appeals to today's cosmopolitan consumer.
