Pucker up!

Couldn't resist this one. It's a contemporary cabinet based on a design by the Italian designer and furniture maker Piero Fornasetti, who died in the late ninteen-eighties. Those lips? Fornasetti had a thing for those lips. They're large silk-screen images of the kisser of Lida Cavalieri, a nineteenth century opera singer. Fornasetti apparently used this image often in his furniture. If only he had used tulip wood (say it fast).

Thanks for sharing. Always educational!
We'll leave that tulip comment alone.

Not sure why but something a little unsettling about this piece. Great job on the model nonetheless :thumb:

I like it a lot.
Lots of his work is more like a canvas than it is a piece of furniture.

Thanks, everyone.
I agree that the piece is a little unsettling, and that it's more like a canvas than a piece of furniture. Interesting nonetheless. I can see it at home in a large European salon, surrounded by swags of damask curtains and lots of gilded and overstuffed furniture.
