The Totoro Furniture Collection Adds Whimsy + Magic Like Its Japanese Namesake

We all eventually grow out of the imaginary friends and characters that brought so much joy and magic into our lives when we were younger, but sometimes, we need them back. That was the thought designer Kateryna Sokolova had while designing the Totoro collection for Italian brand Driade. Named after the same Totoro from the film “My Neighbor Totoro” written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki, the collection consists of a fully upholstered chair, armchair and three-seater sofa, as well as three coffee tables, that are characterized by their soft rounded curves, whimsical silhouettes and elegant lines.

The sofa and chairs have a design that emphasizes the generous sizes of the seat, backrest and legs. The fixed upholstery can be chosen as fabric or leather. The three different sized coffee tables continue the look and feel of the chairs but are instead designed with an unusual three-leg base where one leg is larger in diameter than the rest. The tables are topped with an MDF board with a shaped edge and finished with a fine-textured lacquer in three pastel shades.
