Modern life is all about being adaptable. There are plenty and more celebrities that symbolize our modern life. However, no one does it better than Andy Warhol. Rather than criticizing modern life for what it robbed from us, he focused on what it gave to us. Just like the modern world, Warhol’s creations were all about mass production. They were about deriving the maximum from the limited sources one has. Both modern architecture and interior designing aim at maximizing the utility of available space by making sure that purpose of certain area is not limited or confined. Nothing might exemplify this school of modern thought more that the Warhol Sofa designed by Simone Brewster. The sofa is more a piece of furniture and serves multiple purposes. Let us see what it is all about.
The Warhol Sofa is like the convertible Ferrari for the world of furniture. It allows a person to convert the same space into his lounge, his work space and also his bedroom. Moreover, it is really nice and it seems that it is easy to both assemble and then take out to make another piece of furniture out of it. Furthermore, it has a very unfinished look to it from a distance. I suppose the exterior of the piece could have been made to look a lot more regal and elegant. But then, that is something you can improvise on yourself, if you have both the time and the skill.
The Warhol Sofa may not be the best choice for most conventional people, but it is really a fine option for those single people who live in confined space or those who are not looking to but too much of a furniture. I still think it looks best in the room of maybe a studying student or a loner. It has nice feel to it and you can amaze your friends by changing it instantly. So what is the best part of this piece of furniture? For me it is the simple fact that you can convert your working table into a bed and take a nap whenever you are just too bored. That is great news indeed, for me!
