The Barcelona Day Bed – Made of Chocolate

Posted on: December 9, 2009

Lately i’ve been mad about Mad Men, the US series about Madison Avenue advertising executives set in the ’60s and i spotted the gorgeous sofa/bed that Betty is lying on while at the psychologist…. Well turns out it is a famous piece of furniture called the Barcelona day bed!

My other addiction lately…. Chocolate! Hmm so comforting to buckle up under a blanket and open up one of those Santa chocs!  🙂

But look at that! Someone crafted the Barcelona day bed entirely out of chocolate!

Created by Leandro Erlich and Guido Mogni it’s a piece of art to die for!

“Walking closer, one realized that the couch was made of chocolate, each pleat, button, and stitch lovingly rendered with a thick coating that looked (and felt) eerily like leather. As the maid brandished serving utensils and sliced into the couch, she revealed the glorious truth: a moist, buttery layer cake with hints of cream, coffee, and liquor buried inside. The pillow was even softer, fashioned from an airy angel food cake spiked with vanilla. Viewers had difficulty deciding whether to stare or eat, but quickly settled on the latter.”

Oh how i wish i could rip that button off with my teeth!
