Several readers inquired about the pebble floor cushions featured in a recent post on the LoftFloat houseboat by Magma Design. And we can understand why. Livingstones are a modular seating concept developed by French designer Stephanie Marin that is both practical and poetic.Available as floor cushions, pouffes, and sofas, Livingstones are formed around a structure of Bultex foam rubber and covered in 100% virgin wool or polar fleece in a wide range of sizes, shapes, and colors. An indoor/outdoor version is available in neoprene.
In addition to Livingstones, the company also makes a line of modular curtains called Mobile Shadows. These whimsical clouds available in silk or linen can be used as a window covering, partition wall, or art installation. They come in seven sizes with an adjustable cable and magnet system that can be fixed anywhere on the shape.
Livingstones and Mobile Shadows are widely available in Europe, but there are a few distributors in the U.S. Check her web site for details: www.smarin.net
