MIKE x George Nelson Crackle Sofa

As a bit of a former sneaker freaker, this furnishing collaboration between street fashion brands MIKE and Last Man Standing caught my eye for it's unique quality. Mike founder Scott Nelson fell in love with the shape of the 1958 Canadian dark walnut George Nelson sofa with built-in end tables, so he remixed the MCM era seating with modern upholstery that mimicked the crackled leather finish of the most famous sneaker of all time, the Nike Air Jordan. Like its limited edition footwear counterparts, MIKE built 23 limited editions of this combination of fashion and lifestyle products (the end tables now meant to showcase your limited variant colourway kicks), available for an equally exclusive $4600. But to be honest, I liked the originals...both the vintage Nikes and the original George Nelson. Nonetheless, a cool idea. [via Hype Beast]
