Canapé Cactus Couch & Ottoman: Is It Getting Prickly in Here?

by Range

While they might have different upholstery, most sofas and couches look pretty similar. From time to time, though, you come across something very different. This cactus couch is definitely unusual, because cacti usually don’t make good sitting places.

The Canapé Cactus Couch was part of the Isn’t It Romantic exhibition at MAKK in Köln, Germany. The Paris-based Italian designer Maurizio Galante made up a variety of prickly-printed sofas, couches, and ottomans. But rather than using actual cacti, these succulents are printed on “bio-elastic” fabric.

The exhibition runs until April 21, 2013. If he ever ends up selling them, I’m betting they’d be much more comfortable than actual cacti.
