Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor. These incredible framed chairs and sofas from Slokoski — a design company run by two brothers — are the definition of statement furniture. The hand-carved, incredibly ornate frame makes it feel like a work of art, framing you while you no doubt enjoy macarons and luxury-brand tea on the velvet tufting. Available in eye-popping purple upholstery or more demure grey, with frames in either golden or silver, these seats remind me of Marie Antoinette/rococo splendour. But don't worry if you don't see the colour scheme you like: the Slokoski brothers offer fully-customized pieces, as well.

While these are probably out of most of our price ranges, they are pretty as hell to look at. Plus, they give me a lot of inspiration about making a furniture piece the focal point of a room. Head over to the Slokoski site and get inspired by Baroque beauty. Then come back here and share how you'd style these pieces in your home. I'm thinking I would make this the focal point of my living room, with Baroque picture frames and mirrors decorating the walls, and heavy velvet curtains on the windows.

  1. This would be a neat thing for a restaurant or venue to have for a photo booth! Love that purple!

  2. Adding this to my list of crazy awesome furniture to save up for (first is a replica of the giant chair in Doctor Horrible's Sing a Long Blog).

  3. Can someone with more money than me buy one of these for the world's sexiest boudoir photos?!?? PS – You have to share the pictures with us after. Gah, so pretty.

  4. UNFFF!! So much want! I'd love to get one in red with a black frame and I just want to curl up in it and drink wine and look like a work of art.
