Description

The frame of this sleek sofa is made of solid teak, yet maintains a feeling of lightness as it rests on gently tapering legs. We love the subtle, considered details of this design especially the floating arms and back rest which are supported by chrome steel rods. The brand new cushions have been reupholstered in a chic fabric and are very comfortable.

Danish designer Peter Hvidt trained as an architect and cabinetmaker. His furniture designing career has been studded with a trail of iconic statements of design – this sofa is no exception.
