Our love affair with plywood drives our friends crazy. It's such an honest material, it's light, it's unexpected, and when you get tired of it you can always paint it. Here's a sofa from Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek that's got us thinking DIY...

Piet Hein Eek is one of our favorite furniture designers. We love everything he does, and he doesn't just make gorgeous furniture out of reclaimed wood. We check his web site often for inspiration, and just noticed this sofa from his new collection.


I don't think we could afford it, even if it were for sale (it doesn't say). But the lines are beautiful and maybe Guy, who made our cabinets, could try his hand at building something similar. After all, we have sheets of plywood leftover from the kitchen renovation. We could have a thick foam piece cut, make a cover for it, and use all of our big down throw pillows.
