Softness is not the only factor that defines the face value of any seating furniture. Though we crave for a nice wooden base with comfy cushion top, sometimes, it’s just the opposite element that attracts our attention and compels us to go for it. Take for instance, this beautiful set of furniture made from recycled aluminum. Featuring a hand-chased texture and scalloped sides, the hollow aluminum ‘tuffet and ottoman’ carry a unique grace and exude a magical charm. The top is adorned with intricately done floral pattern, purposely negating the idea of cushions and increasing the versatility of the furniture. Price: $690.
