Moooi Boutique

When designing a room for living, I prefer to leave the surround light and bright, and bring strong elements into the environment for focus. It makes for bold and dramatic spaces. It does get tricky sometimes, as primary furniture pieces like a sofa can prove to be a hefty investment, and it feels risky to go with a bold statement, as you will want to live with that choice for a considerable amount of time.

Slipcovers came into fashion years ago for good reason, as they are removable and easy to clean, which is a plus for those of us who live with kids and pets. They offer the option to use multiple covers to suit your mood of the moment, and provide the ability to change with your style choices over time. Often, slipcovers are frumpy and a bit sloppy, and aren’t suitable for a modern or clean lined environment. Or are they?
Meet Moooi boutique, my favorite solution for such a quandary. Designed by Marcel Wanders, these slipcovered statements are modern, beautiful and playful. Not only can you change the fabric on a whim, but there are also multiple options for legs as well as coordinating blankets and pillows. These sofas are generously proportioned, sleek and stylish. What more could one want?
I adore this Moooi Movie. What a fun and expressive way to portray this boutique line.
Hey, that sounds familiar. FLOR is sleek and stylish, removable and easy to clean, changes to suit the mood of the moment and trends over time. I dare say, they make quite a pair.
