ACNE Furniture at Liberty

According to Racked.com:
In stores beginning next spring: Acne's first furniture line—five sofas created by the Swedish retailer inspired by designer Carl Malmsten. The collection is currently on display in London at Liberty—a denim version of the limited-edition series was previously shown at Karl Lagerfeld's house during Paris haute couture week.

Why denim? "Denim is our history and heritage, I always believe that it is the perfect blank canvas," Acne founder Jonny Johansson told Dazed. "We treated the denim as we do our jeans—bleaching them, washing them and playing with coloured washes. Unfortunately, like a great pair of jeans they stretch as you sit in them—so we will be making the sofas in alternative upholstery fabrics."
