We recently looked at the classic Mah Jong sofas (a prime example of hippie chic) and while these are a totally different design concept, a similar great high end...

... mixed with patchouli aesthetic informs these sofas. Designed by Tonio de Roover in 2006, they are currently making the blog rounds.

Our take on these is that they are intended as more of an art installation than as a prototype for a "real" furniture piece, but the style is fabulous. A complete mashup of old and new, decoration and minimalism, traditional and modern....and it looks like it would be pretty comfy with a couple of throw pillows.
