Take a Picture...it'll last longer!

Photos on furniture???  Not sure it's totally my thing but I applaud the creativity and imagination behind it.

These Renoma Berge pieces from Distant Origin blend photos of animals and humans for a surrealist flip on classic furniture frames. City/country on a Louis frame is cool but I don't know if I'd go down the horse head ottoman route...

A little less freakish are these nature-inspired pieces from Chair Couture.

Vintage french antiques are revamped in organic  or recycled fabric printed with images from nature - making them truly green!

I love the soothing yet vibrant images of grass, water and dandelion fields!

I've seen the chairs from Chair Couture but the chairs up top with the photos are definitely different. It's a neat idea with a lot of possibilities although I wouldn't necessarily want a horse head on my furniture either :P
