The Coiling Collection

Via a Tweet from @Patricia_Zapata, author of the stylish book, Home, Paper, Scissors, I loved seeing this collection of coiled furniture designed by Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay, which was exhibited recently in FAT Gallerie in Paris.

The award-winning duo works from their London studio, Raw Edges Design. Granted, the full-scale furniture isn't paper - instead, it's durable wool felt combined with wood and an exterior coating of resin, but I'm picturing miniature furniture created in similar style with quilling strips - same goes for the looped rug.

Click through close up images of the colorful collection at Raw Edges Design Studio. There's also a cute, quick interview with Yael and Shay on Wallpaper.com in which they are asked, "If you could design in only one material forever, what would it be?" Care to guess their answer?!

Echoing what everyone else said, I also thought these were miniatures! First thing that came to mind? Doll furniture for my kid.
Really, really amazing stuff.
