Pierre Yovanovitch’s New Furniture Collection Features Cuddly Chairs

You might have heard of the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears, when you check out the new furniture range released by Pierre Yovanovitch you might be impressed with sheepskin armchairs included in the collection. The French designer had an exhibit held in New York at the beginning of 2017 and many are surprised by the new furniture. People are accustomed to seeing sheepskin slippers, boots and gloves but not furniture.

The chairs are only part of his new collection which features 24 custom designs created by Yovanovitch. The exhibit was entitled OOPS and was held at the Tribeca gallery R & Company. This was the very first time that he was able to have a show within the United States.

The cuddly chairs are popularly called Bear Armchair and it has become a staple in the portfolio of the French designer. The upholstery of the ursine shape chairs featured during the showcase are made of sheepskin and created in three varying sizes – Papa Bear, Mama Bear as well as the Baby Bear. This follows the characters of the famous fairy-tale.

Every chair has a soft rounded shape, the top of the chair’s back has protrusions that look very much like ears and the wooden feet is spherical in shape.

There are also other designs featured in the exhibit such as a bench shaped like a donut, tables that follow the form of giant pebbles and fluffy dining chairs which are called Madame and Monsieur.

There are lamps with black pendant that looks to be made of viscous liquid and the pattern was created with the help of a palette knife. The exhibit also features a set of lights which is named after the famous ET because it looks like the alien during the 1982 movie of Steven Spielberg.

According to Yovanovitch, his collection was made through the help of craftspeople located all over Europe such as textile specialists, cabinetmakers, lacquerers, ceramists, weavers, ironworkers, upholsterers and glassmakers.

The cuddly bear armchairs are perfect for the cold days when you are wearing your sheepskin slippers and sitting down to enjoy a cup of tea before bed.
