Buying furniture can be a significant investment, so you want to make sure you’re putting your money towards something that will last. While fluffy upholstered pieces can help you take a load off at the end of a busy day, fabric furniture is often more difficult to care for and maintain than wood. Designer Adam Friedman from Los Angeles’ Sitskie design studio, who spent years working in furniture sales, has created a new line of furniture that aims to solve this problem. His solid wood pieces conform to the body like memory foam, giving users the best of both worlds.
Friedman’s cushioned block system is responsible for providing a soft comfortable experience while also maintaining the benefits of a solid surface including durability and cleanliness. He hopes that with this new design he’ll be able to address people’s concerns about damage, staining, dust, life of fabric and style often raised with regard to upholstered pieces. It has taken Friedman and his team years of trial and error; however, they are pleased to bring their unique solution, which is also backed by a U.S. patent, to the market.
One of their newest pieces, the Blocked Bench Arm, is constructed from 450 separate pieces of wood. All of the furniture is made with solid domestic and responsibly harvested wood.
