B&B Italia Tufty-Time Sofa
Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola often looks to the 1960s and 1970s for inspiration. When she created the Tufty-Time Sofa for B&B Italia in 2005, these eras influenced her vision heavily—along with classic Chesterfield and Capitonné sofas. She created a new interpretation of these two traditional styles and added her own signature flare that represents a free, casual lifestyle. The modular seating system can be manipulated in multiple ways, allowing for island, 360-degree, linear, or peninsula-shaped seating. The upholstery, which is available in multiple fabrics and leathers, is subdivided into large squares that are connected with pleats—which are perforated in the leather version.
