Boca do Lobo Limited Edition Versailles Sofa is inspired by 17th century French furniture
Boca do Lobo has been known to us for their abstract, but rather aesthetic ornamentation of safes and cabinets, like the Heritage sideboard and the Millionaire safe. This time, their lend their brushes of creativity to the limited edition Versailles sofa set which brings alive the times of the 17th century French court, via classical furniture design. Going back to what they actually did best seems to have pushed up their ante, and the result is there to be seen, and indeed a sight to be beheld. The price for this classic piece of ornamented furniture is $22,708 (€17,300), but is available in a strictly limited set only.
Traditionally speaking, Boca do Lobo has gone by the dictum of ‘We strive to encourage sensational experience’, and their attempt at the Versailles sofa proves it pretty much strongly. For those who are addicted to the décor and style of the 17th century French Courts, which were also the centers for Pagan art and grandeur of that age, the sofa is indeed what they would call sensational. The ornamentation and detailing is virtually a live demonstration of the time back then, much of which included societal restrictions and oppression to a large degree. Though the exact fabrication isn’t known, but marble would be most feasible as it looks. However, the carving of such a hard fabric can indeed demand a lot of tenacious craftsmanship, which is on ample display here. Some of the design neat the corners are a favorite, but the back of the sofa is what gets all the attention. The welcome contrast comes in the form of the blue velvet cushion and seating, which indeed lends a royal touch as well.
For those looking for ornamented furniture like this one, Finkeldei crystallized furniture would sure be of interest. However, if it’s modern day minimalism which gets you going, then the Mercedes X Formitalia collection hits it on the button.
