Harow Arcade Sofa

We love arcades and we love sitting comfortably here at Coolector HQ so it won’t come as any surprise to hear that we’ve fallen mighty hard for this awesome looking Harow Arcade Sofa which will be an essential addition to any retro video game fan’s man cave. Both striking and exceptionally comfortable looking, this cracking piece of furniture design is the sort of unique piece that we’re big fans of and we’re sure we’re not alone in falling for the old school gaming aesthetic on offer here.

The 1990s were a golden age of video games and that’s the era into which these Harow Arcade Sofas tap with their design endeavours. Harow are a French design studio who take it upon themselves to craft pieces that are the ideal mix of art and design. Their ethos is not to follow any trend but instead to concentrate on the beauty of the objects which invariably leads to mighty striking pieces coming out of their studio such as these superb looking Arcade Sofas.

Gaming Aesthetics

Needless to say, not everyone is going to want a 90s video games inspired piece of furniture in their home but if this is the sort of aesthetic that you appreciate and you have the sort of contemporary interior design endeavour to accommodate it, you’ll find few more striking pieces of designer furniture out there than these Harow Arcade Sofas. Taking their design inspiration from 90s classic such as Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Virtua Fighter, these super cool pieces of furniture are definitely going to turn plenty of heads and are perhaps better suited to commercial premises than residential.

We’re loving how comfortable these Harow Arcade Sofas look and from a purely visual point of view, they’re pretty unparalleled in the looks department. Crafted from recycled wood, steel and velvet, there is a mixture of retro appeal and contemporary comfort to be found here and you’ll be impressed with the tangible sense of quality that they exude. Measuring 125 cm x 110 cm x 150 cm and weighing in at 55kg, they are going to take up a fair bit of space but might just be the perfect spot for playing your favourite video games or taking in some retro movie classics.

The 90s gaming experience was beyond compare in our opinion here at The Coolector and anything which remembers and celebrates this time period is OK in our book so these Harow Arcade Sofas were always going to resonate with us. If you’re after a standout piece of furniture for a contemporary piece of interior design, they’re certainly going to tick plenty of the right boxes and there are a whole host of designs from which to choose.

Choices, Choices

Needless to say, the 90s wasn’t exactly short of video games or cultural icons and a lot of these have been captured in the custom paint jobs available with these Harow Arcade Sofas. Chances are if you had a favourite video game from the 90s, it will be represented in this line up of sofas from Harrow and, if not, they do take custom jobs on request so you might just be able to compel them to create the video game of your choosing.

Eye-catching design coupled with genuinely unique aesthetics make these Harow Arcade Sofas a real love or hate piece of design but we sit firmly in the former category here at Coolector HQ and we’re in no doubt at all that there will be plenty of other retro video game lovers who would love to get their hands on one of these cracking pieces of furniture with a vintage vibe.
