New bi-annual publication Dirty Furniture aims to explore the “relationship between people and the things they live with.” They’ve planned just six issues and will end in 2017, with each focusing on a different piece of furniture. The launch issue covers all things couches—from the “female in repose” trope throughout art history, what American artist Bryan Christiansen discovered underneath abandoned sofas, analyzing the current vogue for untidy living rooms and interestingly, surveying whether couch designers take home the very object they created. And if not, whose couch do they have in their living room? Lounge furniture has never seemed so relevant and we’re already looking forward to Issue 3, “Toilet.”
