Warm and comfortable, Husk-Sofa is born from the overturning of the traditional construction process of a sofa: it is in fact its soft and flexible parts that have structural qualities. It has a deep seat and comes in two sizes. Its important volume is made lighter by the supports available in different finishes, while the loose down cushions increase its comfort. Refined and informal at the same time, Husk-Sofa revisits the tradition of Chesterfield sofas and addresses the theme of capitonné quilting in a contemporary version.
