Vancouver-based designer Greg Papove has created a collection of furniture that was inspired by your everyday socks and the stories they have to tell. Socks + Furniture is a coffee table, floor lamp, and sofa that challenge one to take a second look at the mundane and not to overlook the simple things in life.

The Unify Sofa consists of a slipcover that not only physically unifies the chairs, it visually unifies them as well. Socks are a big part of team uniforms (where the sofa gets its inspiration from) and much like a team, these individual chairs work together to provide comfortable seating.
