If plush, sculptural curves and richly opulent fabrics are your bag, then this slick collaboration from two of Italy's most formidable design houses, Arflex and Fornasetti, will get the heart racing.

From a gorgeously curled cherry-red armchair to colour-blocked self-standing screens, square, luxurious hexagonal ottomans and a low-lying lounge chair, the collection features some outstanding pieces and melds the best elements from the two design houses. Arflex, renowned for a cutting-edge clash of tech-y materials, clean aesthetics and experimental-meets-architectural sensibilities, brings the form and function, while iconic Milanese brand Fornasetti - arguably most famous for putting the face of 19th century soprano Lina Cavalieri on plates, candles and interior oddities - gives the modernist shapes an air of luxe, feminine warmth.

The Limited Edition Arflex & Fornasetti collection is exclusive to Poliform and will be showcased in a diorama exhibition of vignettes styled by interior stylist Steve Cordony in both Sydney and Melbourne late August.
