Today’s ‘DreamwallStyle’ post is a tasty treat for all you January dieters!
My good friend Nina Stobart (Yes think Stobart Lorries) bought to my attention something rather incredible….. A chocolate Couch!
Back in 2009 an Argentinian artist named ‘Leandro Erlich’ created this edible chocolate couch, a replica of the iconic Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona couch.
It was entitled ‘You Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat it Too’ The Chocolate couch was created for an art exhibition named ‘Let Them Eat Art’
How incredibly clever is this ‘Chocolate Couch’ made with an edible cake as the filling, then completely smothered in a thick layer of edible delicious chocolate. Even down to all the fine detailing on the buttons and stitching is completely made of chocolate.
My perfect kind of furniture, a chocolate filled three piece sweet!
I wonder if it melted under the lights at the exhibition? or even someone tried to sit on it? ‘Let them Eat Art’ or ‘Seat it’ indeed!
Again thank you to Nina for bringing this chocolate delight to my attention.
