Although not everyone agrees, design is an art form that combines beauty and functionality to create both physical and mental well-being. Over the years, many artists (painters, sculptors…) have tried their hand at designing furniture.

This synergy between art, design and the creation of highly functional objects is in front of our eyes every day when we return home from work and enjoy a pleasant evening sitting in our favourite armchair or relaxing on the sofa. Not everyone knows that it was an artist who created the comfort we experience when using furniture.

Exaggerated shapes, bright colours and innovative materials! The experimentation never ends! Many manufacturers invest in the artist and his vision of the world by making the use of colour their manifesto. Others focus on original yet cosy and comfortable shapes. Others focus on ecological materials combined with minimalist yet modern design.

And let’s not forget the illustrators, in the photos Clara-Iris and Sonia Pulido, who are responsible for setting the furniture in various types of spaces using their imagination and making the eye of the beholder perceive all the art and beauty of the world of interior design.

More specifically Sonia Pulido examines the intimate dialogue between body and mind. Using different rooms at home and Sancal’s new furniture, for which the artist has discovered new uses. Vitalistic scenes in which the protagonists, all of them women, explore a simple and homely new normal approach such as listening to music, having a cup of tea, reading a book or making balls of wool. These activities are combined with high doses of agility, balance and a lot of elasticity.

Instead Clara-Iris was inspired by the poetry of nonsense, turns the everyday into the absurd. Her graphic narrative is striking and reflects on how we behave. If there is one thing that characterises human beings, it is that, on many occasions, we complicate the simplest things.

An interior designer is not necessary in this case. What is important is that the visual impact is harmonious. To achieve this harmony, it is advisable to adapt the size of the cushions to the size of the sofa. This means that if the sofa is very large, it is better not to opt for cushions that are too small. And vice versa, if the sofa is small, it is better to discard large cushions.

It is advisable to combine several cushions together so that they can be arranged symmetrically ( or not) on either side of the sofa. This does not mean that they must be identical in colour, fabric or pattern; on the contrary, it is better to create interesting colour contrasts between the various cushions and the sofa. If, on the other hand, you prefer a more sober style, we recommend opting for the elegant neutral tones of grey, beige or cream.

The more empty space we leave in the middle of the sofa, the more minimal the result will be; the less space we leave, the more cosy and hygge the result will be. The number of cushions is a personal choice. Obviously on a small sofa it will be better to keep the number small, while on a large sofa you can indulge a little more.
