Candy-inspired furniture is its own special niche of home décor, but it certainly brightens up a room and sparks interest. There are actually companies that specialize in candy-inspired furniture, like Jellio, as well as designers who do the same, like Kirstin Overbeck.

The DP Chair is less overtly candy-shaped and more an allusion to candy. Its actual shape is unique in that it allows the chair to double as a lounger or a rocker. Featuring unique cut-out designs in the wood that let you see the rainbow-painted interior, the design clearly alludes to something other than candy – Petunin’s other series of works, all of which feature similar shapes and bright colors.

In overview, Petunin’s work certainly speaks of the futuristic furniture genre and its use of wobbly shapes, bright and plain color combinations, and geometric patterns. You can see the trends when you’re looking at trend-watching sites like Pinterest, and there’s no doubt that Petunin’s works fit right in.
