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.
