The modular Suita Sofa, designed by Antonio Citterio in collaboration with Vitra, is almost endlessly customizable. Choose from components including one armed seats, two armed seats, a chaise shape, a desk/tray/shelf along the back, headrests, and ottomans to create the perfect design for your space—be it a sprawling sectional for a spacious loft or a compact couch for a small apartment.
- The canon of modern couches already has a pair of Eameses, but it took a small clutch of Italian furniture mavens to create the Charles.
Someone’s finally done it: a high-design beanbag chair for adults. Frolla’s removable cover features cordonnet stitching in an electric blue yarn; the base fabric comes in beige or gray cotton.
The M.A.S.S.A.S. collection is compact and tidy, defined by the raised, tacking-like stitching along its seams. Upholstery fabric is bonded to wadding to create an ubersturdy covering for its polyurethane foam core.
This modular sectional has the low-slung, relaxed silhouette of an Italian sofa three times the price. Bright persimmon contrast stitching adds just the right amount of oomph to the otherwise neutral, khaki-inspired palette.
- One of the highlights of my recent trip to Basel, Switzerland, was crossing the border to visit the Vitra campus in Weil-am-Rhein, Germany, about 25 minutes from Basel, and exploring the VitraHaus.
- Two B&B Italia sofa designs crop up frequently in the Dwell archives: the Charles by Antonio Citterio and the Tufty-Time by Patricia Urquiola.
