Novelty is one those things that helps us get through the day. It really does. It could be YouTube, it could be Tumblr, or it could be a ball in a cup. It doesn’t matter. We also get really excited when novelty meets furniture. Shit just seems to get more real for us when this happens. The Canapé Cactus sofa balls designed by all-round creative, Maurizio Galante ticks all those boxes.

The born-in-Italy-now-Paris-based couturier and interior designer showcased his first ready-to-wear fashion collection in Milan way 1987. Inspired by nature and emotion, Maurizio’s designs are known for their eclectic creations with his signature style – the repetition of simple elements. In fact, you may very well recognise his name as one of the few haute couture designers still operating today and their particularly architectural tone – an obvious influence since prior to turning his hand to fashion, Galante was actually a trained architect.

The Canapé Cactus sofa is a series of modular balls (in reality, they’re just big poufs) with a cactus print material. The balls/poufs form a huge cluster that feels like you’re sitting on a bunch of pillows…and what’s not to like about that. There are also a series of ottomans available in the same print, so you can basically fill your house with soft pricks…

For more information on Maurizio Galante and take a look at his truly astounding haute couture collections, as well his other industrial design projects, head to his website here.
