When food inspires your furniture choices
You might not think that food and furniture have any connection other than the risk of spilling your dinner on a dining chair! Of course if you are looking for something for your office reception area such as Reception Chairs you will want to steer yourself away from anything too quirky. However, the following designers have taken their inspiration from the world of food to offer up some delicious furnishings. Here are a few examples that might just make you hungry:
