Rococactus


London based, yet Mexican born designer Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers designed these wonderful rococo and cactus inspired Prickly Pair Chairs. Valentina makes clever use of the classical French oval chair originated in the Rococo period during the reign of Louis XV and the mother of all Mexican symbols; the cactus.

It is part of a collection with chests, chairs, headboards and dining sets all decorated with prints that have very little to do with Rococo but somehow match wonderfully.
