All the Marbles

Following its 2008 U.S. release of Tattoo Pouf—a round stool made to resemble a large marble ball—furniture manufacturer Cerruti Baleri introduced two new marble-like furniture pieces this year in the United States. The collection entitled Louis XV Goes to Sparta features a high-backed sofa and a Louis XV–style armchair upholstered in a silk-blend fabric with a marble photographic print. The seating is creatively deceptive, appearing hard like stone but actually soft to the touch. The $6,930 chair and the $9,240 sofa are available in three marbleized patterns: gray and black Grande Antico, pink and red Portasanta, and white and blue-gray Carrara (shown).
