furniture :: rock solid seating

Fooled ya! These aren't really rocks , but the comfortable creations of Ronel Jordaan. This South African textile designer takes her inspiration from nature, and uses felt to give free rein to her imagination. Socially conscious as well as gifted, Jordaan has set up a women's workshop in Gauteng- Johannesburg-where her personally trained artisans transform interlocking fibers, made from 100% merino wool, into these freeform oversized "stone" floor cushions. Though they may fool the eye, they provide immediately recognizable comfort to weary torsos in search of a relaxing seat.













Soft yet buoyant, the veined, smooth textured cushions can be arranged to support seat and back. Children love them. Parents love them. Guests love them, too. Hand washable in cold water. See more of Ronel Jordaan's creations at her website here.

I can't get over how amazingly life-like they look. And even though they are "rocks" there is something quite soothing about them.
