Weird Furniture: Rodolfo Rocchetti Custom Furniture
Master upholsterer Rodolfo Rocchetti from Rome's Tappezzeria Rocchetti definitely has a great imagination. Rocchetti has made many other well-upholstered, blend-in-anywhere pieces of furniture, but these four sofas are definitely exceptions to that. I'm not sure where you'd put any of these pieces. Maybe Siegfried and Roy need a tiger sofa for their Vegas digs? Or perhaps a Greek architecture aficionado is dying for a replication of the Colosseum in sofa form? While the company's website asserts that "Rodolfo Rocchetti handmade articles are all exceptional, exclusive, refined, and tasteful," I'm not sure if I can get on board with that last adjective. These are definitely unusual, but a black panther sofa with chain around its neck is not my idea of good taste. What do you think of them? And where do you imagine them residing?
