Seventies design classic
An icon of Italian design in the 1970s, the Sesann collection by Gianfranco Frattini was part of a new vision of contemporary living in which ergonomics were adapted to social change, ushering in a way of sitting that is more relaxed and less stiffly formal. Today, as then, it is an open invitation to the beauty of comfort in its most authentic expression. Frattini’s gifted design concept produces seating elements with sensual, generously harmonious, inviting shapes.

Sesann is the absolute epitome of softness
The Julep collection, designed by Jonas Wagell, is influenced by the 1950s Avant-Garde movement, drawing upon its simplicity and grandeur, refined by a contemporary, romantic, feminine allure. Soft, enveloping shapes characterise this family of upholstered pieces.

Ergonomic and elegant
One of our favourite sofa collections from Claesson Koivisto Rune which offers carefully designed shapes and sizes for all-round comfort that work in a variety of settings.. The armrests and backrest trace a soft and cosy outline, complete with feather cushions supporting your lower back. Pictured in velvet and leather, the sofa takes on a totally different personality that works in both modern and historic homes.

Classically inspired chaise, sofa and armchair
The Roma collection from Jonas Wagell is inspired by the soft, curving form of a semicircle and includes armchairs, sofas and chaise longues. The name Roma is a strong reference to the classical sphere in which its lines are rooted – with citations from fifties design, this design is “classical” by nature, and not only in name.
The Roma collection almost floats on the slenderest of legs
The soft and cosy seating of the Santiago collection is the result of the skilled use of proportions. Slim, short legs support the generous, round volumes of the seat and back to create full shapes that offer a visual invitation to find comfort and rest. The versatile collection which includes a sofa and an armchair, plus footrest works in a wide variety of sittings – pick your fabric to change the feel completely.
