At first glance this looks like a prickly patch of cactus, but a closer look reveals it to be designer Maurizio Galante's cactus-printed collection for the Italian furniture line Cerruti Baleri.
The Canapé Cactus sofa and matching Tattoo ottoman feature a graphical print of the spiny succulent on bi-elastic fabric. The seating set is made of high-density structural polyurethane foam over an internal steel frame.
While you might think twice about taking a seat at first, I think it actually looks pretty cushy!
