Densely Quilted Divans

The Panorama Sofa Offers a Whimsically Tight Contemporary Texture

— September 6, 2012 — Art & Design
The big and billowy surface of traditional tufted chesterfields has been adapted to suit contemporary tastes in the Panorama Sofa. The upholstery is made of a luxurious and taught leather to produce an effect that is particularly appealing.

What makes Andrei Otet's design so modern is the playful scaling down of the cushy gridded surface into a tight-knit reticulation. Furthermore, it's been manufactured in a strikingly minimalist bright white. Its form certainly divulges its inspiration from elegant vintage furnishings, yet another feature grounds it in the 21st century. The stabilizing and ornate four-footed base of the Panorama Sofa is made from colorful acrylic material that exudes a visually stimulating presence not found in many antique pieces.
Trend Themes
1. Contemporary Tufting - Innovative use of taught leather to produce a contemporary version of traditional tufting styles for upholstered furniture.
2. Minimalist Design - Adoption of bright and minimalistic design composed of clean lines and simple color palettes in furniture manufacturing.
3. Acrylic as Furniture Base - The use of colorful acrylic material as a furniture base for design versatility and visual stimulation.
Industry Implications
1. Furniture Manufacturing - Opportunity for furniture manufacturers to combine retro design elements with modern features by experimenting with unconventional materials and manufacturing techniques.
2. Interior Design - Opportunities for interior designers to explore innovative textures, materials, and techniques when creating bespoke furniture for their clients' spaces.
3. Fashion and Textile Industry - The incorporation of minimalist design and taught leather texture in furniture design creates opportunities for fashion and textile industries to experiment with new materials and techniques for interindustry collaboration.
