Artists' Furniture: Frieze 2012

Posted 12/10/12 by Your Studio

London’s Frieze Fair is an inspiration every year. This year we’ve constructed an imaginary YourStudio DREAM HOME using furniture-inspired art pieces from this year’s Frieze. Inspiring concepts, great colours, fantastic materials, adventurous forms and uniquely bizarre combinations, please step into our home...
