Acne furnitures are beautiful
The Swedish creative agency Acne, which is mostly known for its fashion brand, also designs furnitures.
The Swedish design by Carl Malmsten, which launched the design side of the company, is now becoming classic. The New Berlin Sofa that he originally designed for the Swedish Consulate in Berlin for instance, is absolutely stunning.
It's very risky when a traditional retail company starts designing furnitures but this one is definitely a success.
