Furnishings by virtue of their designs are envisioned as objects of exhibition – as is evident from your display of newer purchases to your friends and guests. However, rat-race instigated modern-day lifestyles also need equal doses of privacy. And, that is exactly what the Orwell brings to the decor fray, with its snug features and multi-functional attributes.
Named in honor of the renowned author of 1984 George Orwell, the furniture system by the designers’ (Alvaro Goula and Pablo Figuera) own admission is a cross between a sofa, a bed, and a private cocoon. In fact, the name does symbolize the element of intimacy, which can often be lost even within our very dwellngs – courtesy of the ‘Big Brother’ of jobs and overtly social lifestyles.
The Orwell stands out from all of these limitations by emerging as an ‘island’ of shelter within your living space. Almost harking back to your childhood imaginations of a magical yet hidden place, the sofa/bed comes with its quilted curtain that once again makes you the king of the cocoon castle.
Such cabin-esque features are not just for a visual show; the quilted drape also comes in handy to shield against outside noise. So, if you are all up for a short nap, long sleep or just some time for introspection – the Orwell might just be your best bet in the contemporary realm of commercialized furniture.
