Furniture is integral to interior design, but who says it has to be strictly practical? Whilst most opt for traditional furnishings, others prefer to make bold statements and express their unique artistic visions.
Funky furniture was created by and for unique personalities with a keen interest in unconventional styles and aesthetics – it’s all about originality and eccentricity.
With Hunter Furnishings, you can discover furniture fit for your personal style.

The Paper Lounger designed by Molo is a striking furniture piece perfect for that unique look.
Its integral honeycomb-shaped structure and design allow it to be surprisingly sturdy and completely flexible so you can shape it to fit your needs. Aptly named, it’s made from recycled structured paper or textile, making it 100% eco-friendly.
4. Statement Sofas
A sofa is a centrepiece in any living space so why not make it a showstopping one and add personality to your home.
The Cross Sofa designed by Elvis Pennetuzzo is ideal for modern homes with a minimalist aesthetic. Composed of 4 cross-shaped pieces attached like a puzzle, it’s a versatile and eye-catching piece.
Stefano Grasselli’s Tetris Sofa adds a touch of nostalgia and joy to any space, and the iconic Bocca Sofa designed by Studio 65 for Heller resembles a mouth and is a statement piece like no other.
