Louis Vuitton Releases Foldable Furniture at the 2012 Miami Design Fair

December 07, 2012

Good morning all, and on behalf of all of us here at Madison Seating; happy Friday!

You may have heard by now that the fashion gurus at Louis Vuitton have introduced an exclusive collection of 16 travel-inspired furniture and accessories created by 11 designers.

The NYTimes reports that ‘Objets Nomades’ was launched at the luxury brand’s temporary store at Design Miami this week. There are pieces by many famous designers including Maarten Baas, Patricia Urquiola, Christian Liaigre, Edward Barber, Jay Osgerby, and Nendo’s Oki Sato.

Pictured below, the exclusive collection includes a folding travel desk with a leather top, a gold-plated hammock, a stool that unfolds like a flower, a solar-powered bell lamp, a petal-shaped neck cushion, and a beach chair that folds into an attaché-style case.

The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

The Powerful and Subliminal Influence of Furniture Colors

November 19, 2012

Happy Monday (not!) and welcome back,

Here at the Madison Seating blog, furniture is not only our business but also our passion, and we endeavor to share that passion with the greater furniture loving community at large by touching on a diverse range of furniture related topics. The one aspect of furniture that is perhaps most fascinating of all, (to myself at least) is the apparent subliminal psychological effect certain aspects of our everyday furniture can have on our lives.

I first encountered the phenomenon in an article I posted only a few weeks back entitled “Emotional Instability Caused by…Wobbly Furniture!?”, detailing the apparent effects of unstable furniture on our attitudes and emotional health, but I recently came across an equally fascinating article on the psychological impact individual colors and color combinations and how they affect people in profound, subconscious ways.
