Cactus Seating by Maurizio Galante

Would you believe you can sit on that? The cactus-printed sofa and footrest from Maurizio Galante for Cerruti Baleri, might just be the only cacti that won’t stick you. Galante printed an image of the prickly, spiny plant onto bi-elastic fabric to create the Canapé Cactus sofa and the matching Tattoo footrest. While at first glance you might hesitate to sit, you will actually find a cushy place to rest. Who thought a cactus could be comfortable?
