The Walrus Chair by Maximo Riera is Seal-Inspired Seating

The same marine mammal that you admire at the aquarium for its unbelievably robust constitution has been made into the cushy Walrus Chair by Maximo Riera. I could hardly imagine kicking back into something more comfortable than this fatty piece of furniture.

The Spanish artist has so far unveiled an Octopus and a Rhino within his collection of unusual sculpted seating, throughout which he renders remarkably realistic animals merged with modern sitting cushions. At risk of looking kitsch, this concept has been well composed with a polished black ebony color scheme and careful craftsmanship for an overall elegant appearance.

There are few opportunities in life to lounge on the back of the tremendous tusked Odobenidus, so the incredible Walrus Chair by Maximo Riera is quite the catch.
