Freeform “Rocks”

18 01 2009

Bean bag furniture was never as cool as this. Especially if you are a geologist or earth scientist.

Some time ago we posted about Livingstones cushion-furniture which is uber-cool but hard to come by in the U.S.

Since then we found these equally fun rock-like cushions, available online from a shop in Colorado.

Taking her inspiration from nature, socially conscious South African textile designer Ronel Jordaan has set up a women’s workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg where personally trained artisans create these “stone” floor cushions.

By transforming interlocking fibers made from 100% merino wool, these freeform oversized rocks and boulders fool the eye, but provide immediately recognizable comfort to weary torsos in search of a relaxing seat. Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back.

Plus they look like rocks!!

Available at VivaTerra, an eco-friendly online shop committed to sustainability and artisan goods.
