Rug Dealer's Waiting Room

"East Meets West," Tonio de Roover

Next time you go to your local Rug Dealer, don't be surprised if you see these somewhere in on the showrom floor.  While they don't appear to be particularly comfortable, these sofa's are an awesome "nod" to the old mystique of Flying Persian Carpets.  Created by Tonio de Roover, this collection called "East Meets West."  Perhaps somewhat impractical for many, there certainly is some interesting aesthetic value with these living room type of fixtures.  What do you think?

Pretty cool! But looks a little too deep in the seat to be a good sofa. They should have draped a couple feet off the back to put it into normal proportions.

I think these are gorgeous. There was a similar series on exhibit at the Pomidou Museum the last time I was there in 2006.

Thanks for visiting!

Hey Jason! We're big fans of, thanks for visiting. Very interesting to hear you had seen a similar series at the Pomidou. I wonder if this may be the same artist.

I completely agree with MD, it does seem as though these couches have a heavy set back before the support will do much.

Certainly they do serve for excellent decoration. The rugs themselves look similar to machine made Central Oriental rugs, which are very popular right now.

Thanks for commenting!
