Sara Romero and Mariano Vallejo Bustamante López- Aguado studied architecture at the Schools of Architecture in Barcelona and Valladolid, Spain. Sara also studied architecture at the Facoltà di Architettura della Scuola della Sapienza, at the University of Rome in Italy, and Mariano studied a Masters in Design and Restoration of Architectural Structures at the School of Architecture in Barcelona. In 2004, after their experience working for famous architectural firms, they founded Romero Vallejo, a multidisciplinary architecture and general design studio, where they have since worked on both small and large-scale projects.

Designed by Romero Vallejo for GAN, Gandiablasco’s indoor brand, the Ruff Pouf is a very charming furniture accessory which is inspired by the fabric ruffles worn around the neck during the Elizabethan era to denote wealth and status.

The combination of hard and soft, abstract and geometrical patterns lends this furniture item its strong character which makes a bold design statement. There are two different sizes, a high and a lower pouf, 40cm and 30cm respectively. The higher version has a diameter or 70cm while the lower version has a larger diameter measuring 100cm.

The colour options combine selected tones for the inner pleats with the overall grey felt of the outer pleats and body of the poufs; grey, beige and purple for the high version, grey and yellow for the lower pouf. Visit GAN
