Not off the peg: custom-made sofas by
Sophisticated Living

Graphic: Sophisticated Living

In the living room the sofa is the eye-catcher and the place where we spend the most time. But often the design of this room is more individual than the products offered by upholstered furniture manufacturers. Niches, projecting walls or ledges, pitched roofs, ovens or doors can thwart plans to buy the sofa of your dreams. It’s a centimetre too wide here, or the backrests don’t fit there, or maybe the whole sofa is a bit too deep. That’s why we compromise on our couch purchases and buy an off-the-peg model – even though the trend for personalisation is making inroads into interior design in a growing number of areas.

It is always there, when comfortable short-term seating is needs in a small area.

Designed in timeless elegant style, Ed fits into private living or dining room and kitchen as well as in gastronomy and interior finishing areas. The seat, which swivels 360 degrees, is made from two gently curved shaped wooden boards which facilitate the two-tone colour of the stool: Ed is available in the colour combinations white-white and white-grey. For interior designers it can also be produced in their desired colour (RAL colour pallet). The generously dimensioned footrests give comfortable support; the seat heights is adjustable via compression spring.
