You know that rickety-barn-and-rolling-green-pasture life you imagined for yourself one day? The one in which you’d rise before dawn to milk a pair of cows and be greeted hungrily by pigs and geese? Thanks to Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba’s new furniture line for Seletti, livestock can be part of your home (sans the farmy smell).
Sending Animals are constructed from materials that mimic wooden packing crates, and are designed to store an array of household items. A goose doubles as a cute bedside table, and a coffee table takes on the identity of a pig. The bulkiest of all is a cow-shaped sideboard complete with a hinged desk.
Graze on the new pieces at I.D. Chicago (3337 N. Halsted St., 773-755-4343).
