When the Finns do something, they do it right and they do it well. (That's what my Mom says cause we're Finns so we know a little about them ; )
One of the conversations Ville (the Sales Manager at Luonto Furniture) and I had about their totally customizable furniture when I was at High Point this Spring, was that while the rest of the world pretty much orders neutrals, the Russian market is different.
They are about full-on COLOUR! It's common for North American's to think that our major pieces of upholstery should be neutral.
Russians want need to make sure their sofa is DIFFERENT from their friends and neighbours.
It seems like the rest of us think the opposite. That our tiles, kitchens, renovations, things that are permanent and way more expensive to remove should be DIFFERENT from everyone else.
I just received my latest Architectural Digest magazine in the email. I just about died when I saw Bette Midler's garden in her penthouse apartment in New York City. I just sat there, gazing at the photos.
And, by the way, she had a white kitchen and her master bathroom had hex tile floors and subway tile walls. And that's the way it should be, we should all get more neutral in the rooms that really aren't going to change every 7-10 years like a sofa would.
So go for a custom blue denim sofa with contrast stitching and a fully motorized corner bar, with a built in shelf and end table (below).
Or a combined leather and fabric sofa if these are the colours you love:
When Harley Davidson commissioned Luonto to make a sofa for their showroom, they were up to the task, and here it is in the factory before it was shipped.
And if you want a white sofa, they make plenty of neutral ones as well in all kinds of configurations:
Here's a video where you'll see just how their quality furniture is made:
Last week, I received two of these fun pillows all the way from Finland.
I really need to buy some new office chairs! Irene and I were so happy to get these pillows because we need them for these knock-off Eames chairs we have in my studio. Although they sure look good, they are super uncomfortable. Thanks Ville!
