Meet Bucefalo, a dauntingly dark sofa by Italian designer Emanuele Canova. Inspiration came from the figure of Bucefalo, a legendary black horse which only Alexander The Great succeeded to tame.

The sofa has multiple functions: it allows you to sit, to lounge, and to store your books or design objects (thx, Lorenzo).
