Furniture that feels like it could come alive at any moment definitely adds interest to a living space, and the Neotoi Family of furniture by italian designer Roberto Giacomucci is brimming with personality. Each individual piece, from a side table resembling a dog to a face-shaped storage unit, is modern and minimalist yet fun to look at.
Why is it that such a sense of fun is almost always reserved for little kids? We adults deserve a bit of whimsy, too, including furniture that makes us smile. It’s hard to take life too seriously when your dresser is winking at you.
The Neotoi series comes in a limited palette of birch wood, red, black and white. Shapes include ‘Crocodilia,’ a crocodile-shaped storage unit, a dodo-shaped table, a puppy-inspired nightstand and a coat rack that looks like a giant fork.
