Mercedes-Benz designers are putting their collective skills into an all new segment, the furniture market. 

Thats right, taking a break from bringing us luxury automobiles, the design team as Mercedes-Benz has teamed up with leading Italian furniture designers Formitalia Luxury Group, to bring us some tres chic couches and chairs. “The various pieces of furniture reflect the progressive, dynamic design idiom of our current show cars and concept vehicles, offering an exclusive, emotional experience outside our vehicles as well,” says Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz.

Each piece of furniture is said to have a distinct automotive identity, although finding a Mercedes car in a couch is a bit of a tough task. The company claims that the design is revolutionary, and that the furniture will instantly make you reminisce about your old Merc, but it seems like these couches and chairs, are just couches and chairs.

The furniture will be unveiled at the Milan Furniture Fair next week.

Let us know what you think of the collection in the comments section below.
