Bovist is a decorative floor pillow, stool and ottoman all in one. Its appealing shape and casual comfort are provided by the tapered radial seams around the sides and a compact filling of synthetic beads. The fabric cover features a lively pattern in a complex jacquard weave. The motif and colour scheme are inspired by the Vlinder sofa and its multi-layer design. Bovist is therefore not just a striking solo piece or an attractive ottoman for any type of upholstered furniture, but also an ideal companion for Vlinder.
