Sometimes spending 1000s on a new sofa will come back to bite you. Quite literally when you’re talking about Rodolfo Rocchetti’s animal themed collection of sofas. The master upholsterer behind Tappezzeria Rocchetti in Rome is inspired, he says, by nature and has drawn on this rich influence to design furniture that will either impress, tickle or scare your guests half to death! Don’t worry, the sofas are upholstered using fake fur, so if you do indulge, you can invite the animal rights activists over for tea too.
Rocchetti describes his handmade designs as exceptional, exclusive, refined and tasteful. Exceptional, yes, I can see where he’s coming from. Refined and tasteful… a matter of opinion perhaps.
