The cover of this couch expresses the unique character of the material, Wooden Textiles. For instance its inclination to hold a half standing, half falling posture which BELÉN uses to engulf the sofa in a wooden cloud. A heavy rope holds the fabric together and the knot forms a welcome detail in this amorphous pile of fabric. BELÉN has chosen to let the fabric freely show its character. At the same time, Wooden Textiles emphasizes the depth of the couch by the course of the embroidering. There is chosen to thicken the fabric on the spots where it is used most. In this way, BELÉN shows the new role for Wooden Textiles in upholstery for furniture. From being a solid servant to structure, wood becomes a curious and charming actor, more and more suited for interior design.
