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).

Beautiful asymmetric line
The Bucefalo offers space for book storage
The square black steel frame both complements and contrasts with the curved black seat
Close-up (yes, really)
Now to find a house for this black beauty!
