Furniture design examples that are inspiring

A desk that can be bent

This beautiful writing desk was designed with a minimalist style to increase the link between furniture and owner. The foldable desk, designed by Danish designer Mette Karina Johansen, is made out of a metal, a linear foundation that supports stretched leather that absorbs and molds itself around the goods kept within the table, eventually taking on new shapes affected by the owner’s belongings.

“Furniture accumulates value with time,” says Johansen, “and the more the furniture recorder evidence of the owner’s whereabouts and lifestyle, the higher the value for the owner.” “The leather’s potential to expand is exploited since the owner has the power to mold and affect the product over time.”

Seating on a bench

This design has built-in cushions, geometric forms, and various color options. The bench seat is a triumph of experimental design, influenced by Op Art’s color and geometric patterns. The seat, designed by Alessandra Baldereschi Design Studio, is affectionately known as Poppins – a bench with a little more personality. It provides the appearance of patterned cushions, but the cloth pushes through the wood, creating a stunning 3D look.

Chairs with labels

This is a chair design we’ve fallen in love with since it’s both practical and elegant. Clever furniture design never fails to surprise us. We’ve come across some genuine jewels in the past, and designers that manage to reimagine chairs, tables, and more with some truly remarkable designs continue to astound us.

Montreal-based designer Félix Guyon and design and construction organization La Firme collaborated to develop this distinctive chair design, drawing inspiration from the simple label. The chair, which comes in three styles, is basic yet elegant.

lighting for typography

It’s no secret that we at Creative Bloq are major typography aficionados. So you can imagine our delight when we came across this super-cool graphic lamp series by Delightful, a furniture brand headquartered in Portugal. The lamps, based on a variety of renowned fonts such as Garamond, Didot, and Bodoni, come in a rainbow of colors, shapes, and sizes, with one for each letter of the alphabet as well digits 0-9.


We love it when designers combine different design traditions and give them a modern twist, and Luke St Leger’s Japandeco range of custom furniture does just that.

The furniture is made from ethically sourced Scandinavian plywood and is inspired by both the art deco style of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s and the graceful simplicity of Japanese design. Each component has precise forms that slide together to make a strong but beautiful framework.
