Fool Your Senses and Rest Your Mind With Colorful Cupcakes

Cupcakes have inspired an innumerous quantity of designs. Their sweet side combined with an endless design possibility make them perfect as desert, as well as decorative objects. In an inspiring food-related home decor world, the cupcake is just making its presence noticed. I’ve seen nail art with cute little cupcakes and immorally delicious cupcake tattoos; now it’s time to go beyond our skin and enjoy cupcakes in our homes.

From cupcake wall art to cupcake pillows, this interesting theme sweetens up children’s rooms or it can become just a solitary reminder of the good things in life.

Take as example the CUPCAKE Seating Collection by Carolin Fieber for Bretz – a unique, contemporary representation of youthfulness and comfort. Reinterpreting the idea of a fluffy cupcake, the three components of the collection – sofa, armchair, and stool – compose an elegant atmosphere reminiscent of warm dough overflowing from the oven tray. With a hard exterior and soft core, each of the pieces in the collection display an inviting design that promises a fluffy seating experience.

Going even further with the boldness to create cupcake-inspired furniture, some designers combine classy chairs with an undoubtedly fun pattern of colorful cupcakes. Seen on The Java Mama, this cupcake armchair seems to be a hybrid between a comfortable armchair design and the lovely boldness brought by the repetitive cupcake pattern – a modern piece of furniture not meant for those who ignore the playful side of life.

There are things in life we don’t need, yet we want them the minute we lay eyes on them. This is what happened with me and the sparkly cupcake knob you can see in the picture below – it was instant love. This hand painted, engraved wooden furniture knob would look lovely on my kitchen furniture drawers. The 1 inch round pink and glitter twirly top over those engraved bottom lines come close to the shape of cupcake but holds back enough to still display the classic rounded knob shape.

Last but not least, the Cupcake Table from Jellio looks like a cupcake form without the filling, but the matching cupcake seat (not shown) makes that up with a yummy chocolate cream top. The table version displays a glass top, having been described by its designers as their “tribute to all the moms who made those delicious birthday cupcakes when we were young.
