The Grid sofa and stool by Kim HyunJoo adds a playful gamer touch to your home decor.

Seoul-based designer Kim HyunJoo has created a fun statement piece of furniture that goes beyond conventional indoor decor. The influence of her Milanese apprenticeship has translated into the divine craftsmanship and exemplary creativity in each of her furniture pieces.

For this 'Grid' piece, she draws inspiration from the classic embossed leather sofa and gives it a nerdy twist. She uses a bright blue shade complemented by a contrasting yellow grid line. These modernized details make the furniture pieces one-of-a-kind. "An unstructured cubic feet provides a visual pleasure such as blocks or Tetris game," says the designer of her work. With cheeky references and high quality, this piece will appeal to those who want to incorporate gaming with home decor.
